Reading MRI Scans

Getting an MRI report can often lead to more uncertainty and confusion about what to do next and whom to refer. In this talk I show you how to read an MRI scan, the significance of the reports and who to refer. I cover common problems like:

  • Degenerative low back and neck pain
  • Sciatica
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Cervical disc prolapse
  • Cervical Myelopathy
  • Tumours
  • Infections
  • Facet Joint pain

The art and science of correlating spinal symptoms with MRI scans and x-rays

In this talk I explore the correlation between spinal symptoms and MRI scans. I explain how to identify common spinal problems, and also show cases where MRI was a limitation, or even a hindrance to the diagnosis. Illustrated with many case studies, this talk is aimed at everyone in primary care who sees patients with back and neck pain. I explain how getting to the final diagnosis is as much of an art as a science.
