Neurological examination and medical imaging
More clarity following an MRI scan
Following the neurological examination, we perform a medical imaging procedure to determine whether the pain in a patient’s leg is indeed caused by a bulging intervertebral disc. Generally, an MRI scan of the spine is the type of medical imaging procedure performed when a doctor suspects a spinal hernia.
At Bergman Clinics' Back and Neck Centre, MRI scans can either be performed at once or soon after the patient’s intake interview. MRI scans have the advantage of being able to create an image from three directions, and to render the intervertebral disc itself visible, in a manner which tells us more about the extent of its degeneration.
