What is an MRI Lumbar Spine with Contrast Test?

An MRI scan is a special radiology diagnostic test. It makes use of radio waves and magnets to get the complete image/picture of the inside of the body without doing any surgical incision. This scan helps your doctor to study your bones and soft tissues such as organs and muscles. 

This test can be conducted on any part of the body. A lumbar spine MRI scan is a specialized test that is particularly used to examine the lumbar section of the spine. The spine is a region that connects the central nervous system with the rest of the backbone. 

Compared to a CT scan or X-ray, an MRI scan is considered a safe alternative for children and pregnant women. The risk would only be in the case of implants that are metallic in nature. The side effects of MRI are extremely rare.

How to Read Lumbar Spine MRI Results?

MRI lumbar spine scan with contrast conducted in the MRI lumbar scans of Lahore, Islamabad, Karachi, Faisalabad, and other major city labs can help us interpret the results.

The lumbar MRI scan can basically indicate why a person is suffering from pain in the leg, back, or any pain. 

It can indicate the sign of

  • Development of congenital variants that a person can be suffering from since childhood.
  • Degenerative changes e.g a disk that is broken down or herniated. These are called annular fissures. 
  • Infection or inflammation.
  • Benign and malignant tumors.
  • Central vertebral canal stenosis.
  • Changes and inflammation in the spine shape (ankylosing spondylitis).
  • Any other changes such as in case of the abscess.

There is no need for any further processing if the MRI scan image is normal. Obviously, no test is 100% accurate and in the same way, there can be false-positive results for MRI i.e. a scan can suggest a problem that does not even exist. For this very reason, your doctor would suggest more tests.
