Had deep ache in up back in one spot for over 2 yrs, i have had right breast ultrasound it was ok, mam ok. Spine MRI ok. Shoud i get MRI of breast?

Not necessary: It is unlikely the pain in your back is related to your breasts as long as other tests were normal. Hope the MRI of the spine was your neck. If not you might consider that. But you should talk to your doctors ad always to help find the cause ...Read more

It's all in the way the system was programmed. Do some googling and c what u find. It's complicated. ...Read more

Depends: Spine MRI can be done without contrast because disks and soft tissues can be distinguished from the nerves and bones. We order MRI with and without contrast in patients with previous back surgery to distinguish scar tissue (which changes signal intensity on the MRI with the contrast) from disk material (which doesn't). We also order contrast if there is concern for possible infection or tumors. ...Read more
