I have had multiple cervical fusions since 2006. I’ve hardware on the front of my neck from C4-C7 and in the back of my neck from C2-T2. I’ve had MRIs with the hardware in my neck, BUT, there doesn’t seem to be much that can be seen because the hardware, while not magnetic, really disturbs the images. I have had a clear Brain MRI recently, so I worry that if I were to have lesions on my cervical spinal cord, that no doctor would be able to see them.
Has anyone had an experience similar to this? If so, could you perhaps offer advice on the kind of doctor I should see?
