Quickie Consult 59 CI

Preamble: Many of the issues I bring to you are very small, yet each issue is just that, an issue. If you take care of the small issues, then you will be able to build and more importantly, focus on the bigger issues...a larger practice and more family time.

"MRI Quality or Lack Thereof"

This was reviewed this morning with a doctor from Illinois. Please pay careful attention to the slice locations both through bone and disc, with some levels missing the disc entirely. In addition, the radiologist never reported any cord compression and the screen shots below clearly show a cord compression. That grossly changes the diagnosis, prognosis and treatment plan and without a correct diagnosis puts both you and your patient in jeopardy!

Again, you must get certified in MRI spine interpretation. It has now become non-negotiable and the basis for any level of both quality trauma care and success in personal injury.
