Diagnosing Your Back Pain With State of the Art Technology

The Resurgens Orthopaedic Spine Center uses a variety of diagnostic tests to help identify the specific nature of your injury or condition. Visit our patient education portal to learn more about the state-of-the-art diagnostic tests and technology Resurgens Orthopaedics uses to diagnose back and neck conditions.

Imaging is a critical tool for the proper diagnosis of spinal disorders and Resurgens Spine Center is pleased to be able to offer state of the art radiology imaging in all of our offices. X-rays are performed by State of Georgia certified technologists that have extensive training in spine imaging techniques.

For advanced imaging, Resurgens has seven MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) Centers located in Austell, Kennesaw, Lawrenceville, Midtown, Morrow, Roswell, and St. Joseph's. For high quality MRI scans, we use high field, closed GE magnets.

Teleradiology allows our Board Certified Radiologists to review the MRI scans in their reading stations as the study is being performed. If extra sequences need to be performed that can better visualize pathology, the extra scanning can be done at that time to avoid patients being inconvenienced.

Patient comfort is very important to the Resurgens' Spine Center staff and we have MRI audio/video headsets that virtually eliminate any claustrophobic sensation. Patients are able to watch a movie while the MRI scan is being performed.

All MRI technologists are board registered R.T. (registered technologist) who have been specially trained in MR imaging.

Electrodiagnostics Testing

The physiatrists at Resurgens Spine Center perform EMG/NCS.

Electrodiagnostic studies assist in accurately diagnosing your condition. EMG (electromyography) and NCS (nerve conduction studies) test the electrical activity of your muscles and nerves. This allows the physicians to determine exactly where your injury is located. The tests may be done separately or together depending on your symptoms.
