How often to get an MRI? I had one last October and a year and a half before that. I still have pain but my second MRI didn't do a weighted exam. I feel they missed something. I also injured myself while at pool therapy with my PT and haven't returned. Since I have DDD do I need a CT scan? What tests have you had? And when they did surgery did they find it worse than what your MRI or bone scan or x-rays showed? TY.
