MRI of the neck (cervical spine) Kelowna

Magnetic resonance imaging of the cervical section is the “gold standard” for the diagnosis of organs in this area of the body. MRI in Spizhenko Clinic is a non-invasive method of investigation, which will result in high-quality “thin-cutting” images of soft tissues, as well as three-dimensional projections of tumors of bone and soft tissue, as well as metastases.

The detailed image obtained by MRI scanning allows the detection of tumor neoplasms at a very early stage, which will greatly facilitate both the process and the results of further treatment. Angiography of blood vessels and arteries may also be needed for treatment planning. Angiography is performed with an MRI machine and allows to assess the functional features of the blood flow in the cervical section.

In the specialized oncological center “Spizhenko Clinic” a special role is assigned to the quality and accuracy of all diagnostic examination methods without exception. This is important for the development of patient treatment tactics in each individual case of the disease, making treatment plans for the radiosurgical system CyberKnife and radiation therapy.

How does the cervical MRI procedure work?

No special preparation for a cervical
mri kelowna is usually needed. During the MRI procedure, which lasts from 30 to 60 minutes, the patient is in a closed tunnel-type device.

Before the examination, the patient is not forbidden to eat, drink or take medication (except for contrast MRI). However, it is important that the patient does not move during the examination, because movements affect the quality of the MRI images.

MRI diagnostics in our center is performed on a 1.5-body magnetic resonance imaging scanner Siemens MAGNETOM Sola, a modern model of tomography which allows obtaining highly informative images.

If a patient is disturbed or uncomfortable (which happens very rarely!) during the examination, hands-free devices are used to communicate with the diagnostician.

The patient can receive MRI scans of the cervical section and discuss the results with the doctor of Spizhenko Clinic on the day of examination, one and a half hours after the examination.
