My doctor tells me that I need an MRI on my back because of my constant back pain. He checked my nerves and said they they were OK. An ultrasound was also done. He found a slight curve in my spine. Are there any side effects of an MRI and what else other

Like any other : There are many devices with catchy names but they all pretty much do the same thing.
