Nocimed / MR Spectroscopy
Douglas Spiel MD is the first physician in New Jersey to integrate Nociscan / MR Spectroscopy studies in the work up of patients with spinal injuries and pain to confirm disc injury, facet injury and disc pain. This study replaces the need for discography, is NON-invasive, objective, and FDA approved.
Nocimed / MR Spectroscopy is a specialty diagnostic study to evaluate for lumbar disc abnormality and pain. This diagnostic study identifies ‘chemical change’ within he intervertebral discs. When a disc is abnormal and/or painful, the internal chemistry of a disc changes, and is identified in this diagnostic study. This study provides valuable information similar to what was once accomplished with provocative discography, but this is NON-invasive, objective, and FDA approved.
Nocimed / Spectroscopy is typically ordered after traditional MRI to gain confirmation of structural integrity compromise, and identify painful discs so appropriate treatment is planned.
