MRI is now widely accepted as being the
investigation of choice for the entire spine, but particularly the
neck. Conventional MR imaging usually only provides us with anatomic
detail. With the Rhodes apparatus, we are now able to investigate
physiological changes such as instability, ligamentous laxity and
My suspicions were confirmed with your new
flexion-extension technique. Seven out of eight patients referred
for flexion/extension MRIs, who had previous MRIs with only minimal
or negative results, but with with a high clinical index of suspicions
on my part were, in fact, confirmed of having HNP [Head & Neck
Pain] by the new technique. I congratulate you on its development.
It will remain in our armamentarium for a long time to come.
