Surgical Plans Altered by an Upright Flexion-Extension MRI Examination
A 62-year-old woman seeking the cause of her chronic radiating neck pain of 30 years duration underwent a weight-bearing flexion-extension MRI in the FONAR UPRIGHT® Multi-Position MRI. Her neutral-sitting examination showed a C5-6 herniation, but her UPRIGHT® cervical extension examination visualized an additional herniation at C4-5 that altered plans for a simple discectomy and fusion at C5-6.
