Whiplash Diagnosis with Upright MRI
We have developed expertise in examination of Whiplash injuries, and have data presented at the recent Radiological Society of North America(RSNA) that shows that the diagnostic accuracy of MRI following whiplash injury is improved by routine imaging of the cranio-cervical junction. We believe that the accepted practice of imaging the cervical spine, limiting the axial images to below C2 (the axis) is inadequate and can under-estimate the incidence of significant post traumatic dislocation above this level. Upright MRI also has the advantage of being able to perform dynamic studies, and can examine the patients with the neck in neutral, flexion and extension or in rotation if required.
