MR Neurography scan

Has anyone had this type of MRI that is supposed to be able to see the nerve tissue and any compression upon them?

If you do a google search of MR Neurography there are more details. I am going to take some info to my doc and see what he thinks, since diagnosis is getting more difficult.

Anyone had this done?


  • I made two appointments and ended up cancelling...but I see they are opening scanning centers in a number of new locations, so it will be easier for people to get one.

    I think they sound very exciting and impressive and I have been very tempted for several years. I think the doctor is brilliant...and he still sees patients if you want to go to Santa Monica, CA for an appointment.

    I hope you do it, so I can hear all about it!!


    I should add, the reason I ended up not going out to CA to have the test and meet with the doctor is because we determined my problem is probably caused more by instability than by the nerve itself.
  • They have a facility in Dayton. I am going to try and get a referral in order to get a scan. My issue is nerve compression of some sort, I believe, and when that RSD bone scan comes back negative, I'm gonna get on the warpath for this scan. I think, If I have to, I'll just pay out of pocket in order to have the info for a better diagnosis.

    We'll see what happens...

    Thanks Gwen for the info.
