How Much Does a Lumbar MRI Cost?

An MRI, or magnetic resonance imaging, is a painless, non-invasive, and safe medical exam that helps physicians identify and treat medical conditions.  It uses a powerful magnetic field and radio waves to come up with a detailed three-dimensional picture of the lumbar spine, which includes the disks, bones, and almost all other internal body structures.  Unlike a CAT scan or CT scan, an MRI does not use radiation.

Sometimes, an MRI is conducted to evaluate the anatomy of the lumbar spine to serve as a guide in the planning for surgery on the spine or to observe the changes in the spine after an operation.  A lumbar MRI may also be used to determine the problem with the back in the first place.
