Is contrast absolutely necessary during soft tissue neck MRI for evaluation of mass? I had very unpleasant scary symptoms last time i had contrast.
Tell the MRI folks!: I tend to defer to the radiologists to tell me the best technique or study needed to find what i'm looking for.

If you had an allergic reaction, they will want to be prepared - and possibly medicate you in advance to keep you safe. ...Read more

Is there a difference between cervical MRI and neck mri? For detecting mass or scar tissue, which is more useful - CT or mri?
Cervical spine MRI: Focuses on the spine and disks of the neck. Mri of the neck is designed to see all the soft tissues as well as the spine and is not as detailed a look at the spine. Mri contrast is often used for neck MRI and less so with cervical spine mri. Mri is usually better than ct looking at/characterizing neck soft tissues (masses, etc.). ...Read more

This MRI image shows narrowing at arrow 1 and more normal other side, arrow 2. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
Absolutely: As an osteopathic physician dealing primarily with acute and chronic pain for the past 25 yrs, i find that MRI would actually miss the cause of pain after an injury extremely often. Whiplash, for instance, is a 'soft tissue' injury which has nothing that can be seen by an mri. I use MRI very selectively since do's like me can frequently find and treat the cause of the pain just with our hands. ...Read more
