Xrays Vs. MRIs. Frequent monitoring of scoliosis is key to success

Scoliosis Academy - Janzen & Janzen Health Center Campbell, CA.

We specialize in conservative care with a specialty in non-surgical scoliosis treatment!
At JJHC, the health and safety of our patients is our number one concern. That’s why we offer low-dose x-ray imaging and refer out to one of the only MRI facilities in the United States with a Cobb Angle MRI in order to keep radiation exposure minimal, and where possible, at zero.

In particular with a scoliosis case, you have to repeatedly take x-rays to monitor progression and the efficacy of different therapies. That’s why we shoot our x-rays at 1/10th the normal dose of radiation, use lead shielding for the thyroid, breast and gonads, as well as use a protective film. For scoliosis fighters looking to avoid x-ray exposure completely, the Cobb Angle MRI scan at Vision Upright MRI is a technology that can help patients feel safe and give us the diagnostic tools we need to effectively treat each case.

An upright MRI is a comfortable open system that allows patients to stand, sit or lie down in this Completely Open Upright MRI. It’s comfortable and easy but the best part is that doctors get a better diagnosis and can do a better treatment plan. The Upright MRI has the ability to scan patients in a position clinically relevant to the signs and symptoms and enables weight-bearing positional evaluation.
