MEDICAL NECESSITY FOR MRI

Post by Admin on Tue Oct 06, 2015 10:16 am

MRI is the single best test to determine the presence of disc injuries.

Clinical signs that justify the medical necessity for an MRI are:

  • Radiculopathy &/or Paresthesia
  • Neurologic deficit
  • Nature and extent of injury to spinal cord-vertebral column-ligaments and interspinal soft tissues following trauma
  • Muscle-tendon-ligament tears
  • Spinal instability
  • Ligament laxity
  • Failure to respond as expected to conservative care
