Requesting MRI Advice

I want to re-emphasize to everyone here, that we totally discourage any member from trying to provide medical advice in terms of reading someone's MRI report.
I also want to emphasize to ALL members, do NOT request anyone to provide you with advice based on your MRI report.

MRI Readings is something that should ONLY be done by medical professionals that are completely trained in this area.
Outside of that environment, you may be doing someone a grave injustice.

Even if you have looked at the many online sites on how to read MRI reports, they are all very generic. What shows up in one MRI report does not indicate a problem or non-problem for another patient.

The moderator team will continue to edit/post any one that is requesting a MRI reading. We would much rather spend our time handling other areas, so we really need everyone's cooperation on this. Luckily, we have had the support of many old and new time members who understand this situation and will also make a post when someone is requesting MRI readings.

I remember a situation where a members post regarding a member's MRI report was totally invalid. The last thing we want to see here is members providing other members with false information. That is one of the major reasons we identify this as one of the Forum rules which every member agreed to when registering for this site.

You agree that any information, opinions or other content provided by doctors or patients on Spine-health.com forums is for educational purposes only and is not intended for medical diagnoses or treatment. Always consult with a physician for any health problem or medical condition.

Thank you in advance, this can be a serious situation and we would all like to avoid potential problems.

Remember, asking for MRI advice or giving it are both forum violations.
