The Proper Use of MRI in Clinical Chiropractic
The utilization of advanced imaging (MRI) in clinical practice are standard across professions. Unfortunately, pressure from politics and carriers, neither of which have any place making the ultimate decision of whether or not diagnostic test is indicated, influence their use for personal agendas and financial gain. The most essential aspect of basic and advanced imaging used in contemporary chiropractic practices is to help create an accurate diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment plan. Without imaging, an accurate diagnosis cannot be achieved as doctors are left guessing the etiology of their patient’s complaints.
Watch this webinar to learn how utilizing imaging when clinically indicated to formulate an accurate diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment plan also gives you the foundation for a sustainable, successful business strategy. With guests Drs. Mark Studin and William Owens and moderated by Dr. Bryan Weissman, this learning event also covers how to understand disc herniation, bulge, protrusion, and extrusion as well as a biomechanical pathology for your diagnosis.
Learning highlights include:
• Why a conclusive diagnosis is the foundation for clinical excellence
• MRI ordering protocols
• Basic MRI interpretation
