Upright functional MRI, ufMRI, is the best way to reveal injured structures in the neck and brain after whiplash injury and concussion. In addition some, but not all, ufMRI scanners can measure the flow of cerebrospinal fluid. It costs a bit more – but provides valuable knowledge about your condition.
MR stands for magnetic resonance. The I in MRI stands for imaging, here “image diagnostics”, and is the international name for MR. MRI uses a magnet, radio waves and a computer to form images of the structures in the body.
MRI is a non-invasive, non-radioactive method.
