The Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) machine was invented in 1977 and has since revolutionized medical practices everywhere. It is a useful, non-invasive, and safe way to help diagnose conditions. Our MRI machine gives our neck doctors the tools that they need to analyze your bones and soft tissue anatomy.

New York Spine Institute has state of the art and technologically advanced diagnostic tools. In addition to our 1.5 MRI system, we also have a Digital Radiography (DX) x-ray.

Our high-field short bore 1.5 MRI system supports many clinical situations. It will can our neck doctors look at the spine, brain, abdomen, pelvis, shoulder, knee, hip, elbow, wrist, ankle, or even the foot of our Chelsea patients.

New York Spine Institute’s brand-new GE 1.5 system will also provide our physicians with their best images yet. With this system, our back surgeons will be able to see high-quality and detailed pictures of your condition. That way, they can try to more accurately diagnose and eventually treat your back pain.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) uses magnetism and radio waves to produce detailed images of the body. It is used all over the world to diagnose multiple conditions. That is because it is extremely safe, non-invasive, and helpful to physicians. Many times, an MRI scan will pick up the presence of a certain disease when other tools such as x-rays cannot.

We know that doctor’s visits can be scary but we don’t think they should be. We want you to feel comfortable and confident in our office. That is why we have made our office as relaxing as possible. We have relaxing music, earplugs, and even sleeping masks.

New York Spine Institute is even outfitted with its own digital radiology department. In this part of our practice, the images are digitized and radiologists can analyze bone and soft tissue. As part of this, we also offer Longth Length Imaging (LLI) for proper scoliosis assessment.

*The effectiveness of diagnosis and treatment will vary by patient and condition. New York Spine Institute does not guarantee certain results.
