You should get an MRI if you are seriously considering spine surgery. The test can provide a very clear picture of the bone and soft tissue within the spine, and is considered an important step before any procedure.
Since your body changes, an MRI is considered current only if it was taken within the last 6-12 months.
An MRI test is not painful. It uses magnetic and radio waves. Since it does not use x-rays or radiation, the test can be repeated often with no known dangers or side effects.
An MRI should be interpreted by a spine expert. An MRI will help to identify potential sources of pain, but it should be combined with your medical history, symptoms and a physical evaluation for the expert to fully understand the exact source of pain. In some cases, a diagnostic procedure such as a selective nerve root block may also be needed to confirm that the area(s) to be treated is/are indeed the cause of your chronic pain.
