This video--Understanding an MRI of the Normal Thoracic Spine--is designed for the primary care physician or specialist such as a Chiropractor or Physical Therapist to use to learn how to read and understand the MRI of the thoracic spine. The imaging shown in this video is of a normal scan of the thoracic spine-that is--all the structures scanned are normal in appearance and not injured or degenerative. When you can recognize what normal looks like, you can determine what an abnormal finding is.
