what will an mri of the neck reveal?

Spine or ENT spaces: Mri of the neck could mean a study of the cervical spine, and therefore would show disc herniations, vertebral problems and spinal cord problems. It could also mean a study of the anterior spaces of the neck, in which case it will show any problems with the soft tissues, i.E cancer, infection and congenital anomalies.
