MRI is the most advanced form of radiological investigation in B.C. when it comes to investigating neck and back injuries.

And if you hurt your neck or back in a car accident you're probably going to have to wait quite a while to get your MRI ( unless you pay for it privately).

But what exactly do you know about the process?

OK, as for the technology, I'll try and make it simple.

You lay down on a large surface which slides you into the interior of a giant tube.

Inside the tube the injured area of your body undergoes what amounts to a multidemensional, highly detailed interior photograph ( alright - I've tried to keep it very straightforward).

The technology involved is rapidly changing. So don't assume that all MRIs are the same.

But what people don't ever consider are the qualifications and experience of the radiologist who will be interpreting their MRI scan results.

Radiologists who interpret MRI scan results are not all the same.

They have varying levels of training, expertise and experience.

In fact, some radiologists specialize in interpreting specific types of scans.

So when you get your MRI results, don't just assume that what the interpreting radiologist says is 100% right.

It might be that another radiologist has a contrary opinion concerning what your MRI scan does or doesn't show.

Interested in chatting more about how MRIs and the interpreting of your MRI scan might impact your ICBC injury claim?
