Cervical MRI reviewed and explained by Dr. Castanet in this video blog post. Do you wonder how radiologists and other doctors read MRI scans? Have you seen your written report, chock full of Latin words that you don’t understand? Would it help for you to have someone explain, in simple terms, the anatomy of a cervical MRI scan? And to show you what we look for and what some simple pathology may look like?

Then take a look at this video post by Dr. Castanet. He provides a simple demonstration of all the relevant anatomy so that you feel more comfortable in understanding your problem, and feel less fear and anxiety about whatever may be your problem. Dr. Castanet shows you the vertebrae, spinal discs, and spinal cord, and he discusses common pathology.
