The Rhodes Procedure
The Rhodes Procedure is an exciting and unique approach
to MRI's for neck and spinal injuries that reveals what standard
MRI's are unable to see - a view of the cervical spine in flexion
This technique was born out of Dr. Rhodes' own experience
and frustration. "I just got tired of receiving one negative
MRI scan after another on patients I knew had real complaints without
suspected malingering." So the wheels started turning and Dr.
Rhodes wondered what would happen if he put a patient in flexion
and extension during MRI. After going to a local MRI and asking
the technician to do just that, he discovered it was in fact impossible
with the current equipment setup.
As a result Dr. Rhodes created and patented a device
that works with nearly every MRI machine. The entire process has
lead to the Rhodes Produre. For a detailed look from a medical perspective
