It can.: Yes. The field of view (fov) of a spine image is often not complete so if one suspects this, a better MRI and perhaps a ct or pet/ct is general used. However, before additional imaging is done, a good physical exam by a head and neck surgeon who works with neck cancer is absolutely a good idea.

Could: Cervical spine MRI will show spine more. Mri neck will show more soft tissues in neck and not concentrate on spine.
