X-Ray VS MRI - different results?

Hi all,

Is it possible to have issues spinal issues come up through and X Ray but not in a MRI (namely brain and cervical scans)?

I've been diagnosed with C1 / C2 Joint dysfunction and chronic subluxation on L4 / L5. Possibly due to a congenial defect causing 15+ years of symptoms, mostly brain and left had side related.

Diagnosis was through a chiropractor (x rays) and I have 2 brain MRIs previously (both normal). I'm having a cervical MRI in the next week or so through my GP.

I'm not sure if the brain MRIs I've had previously included cervical. My fear is that it may come back normal and I'll be stuck at a dead end through my GP. He says that X Rays aren't great for diagnosing brain and spinal issues (not sure how correct this is).

Can the two tests show different results?
