What you need to know about your MRI for your back pain surgery.

Getting a MRI can feel like a daunting task and that is why so many people are committed to having their back pain surgery taken care of by Boulder Neurosurgical and Spine Associates. They are committed to making your back surgery treatment a seamless event for you and your loved ones. That is why they have so many answers to questions for you on their website when it comes to the little things that you need to know before you go back pain surgery into the whole process. So what are some of the things that are good for you to know if you are getting an MRI/Imaging treatment with BNA? Here is a glimpse of their website that shows you some answers to many questions that you are probably very curious about.

  • A lot of people are curious about the radiologic procedures and whether they do it in their office or not. Their website has the answer for you, “We do not have the ability to conduct radiologic procedures in any of our offices. However, each of our offices is located on the campus of a hospital and per diagnosis from our office, we can arrange for you to have these films taken at a number of locations.”
  • When it comes to sciatica treatment, you might be curious if you need to get an MRI or not when you come in to see the doctor. What does the BNA website have to say about that? “Most patients have had their MRI’s prior to the visit which can make the visit more meaningful, but our doctor’s order MRI’s for individuals who are patients as well. We are happy to see you and order the right tests.”
  • People also want to have the results of the MRI but is that something that you have an option for? What does the website say? “Our providers frequently order imaging tests such as MRI’s and X-rays. We do not give out the results of these tests over the phone. They often require thoughtful and time-consuming review that should be done in the context of a patient visit. We would ask that you schedule an appointment to go over these tests so that we might show them to you and try to answer your questions.”
  • Why weren’t you invited to look at the MRI on the computer? Well that is because you are always welcome to check out the MRI during an appointment. Just ask the provider if they don’t show you because it’s possible that they simply forgot to invite you to take a look at it.
  • Where do your images, films and CDs go after surgery? The website says, “Your images will be housed at the location where they were taken. Whatever films you provide to us will be on file at the BNA office location where you were seen. However, we cannot ensure the films we have are your most recent, or that they are a complete set, therefore it is recommended you go directly to the source who took the images.”
