CMR

Motion X-ray with detailed reporting of cervical ROM

Motion X-ray

ROM visualized like never before

 The upper 30 percent of the cervical spine (motion segment) contains only ligaments, no discs.

Motion X-ray provides key insight into a motion segment of the spine. A motion segment, as defined by the AMA, is “two adjacent vertebrae, the intervertebral disk, the apophyseal or facet joints, and the ligamentous structures between the vertebrae” (AMA Guidelines 4th & 5th Edition, 378). A spinal injury can manifest

itself in the alteration of motion segment integrity, which can be loss of motion segment integrity

(increased translational or angular motion) or decreased range of motion (ROM).

Cervical Motion Reporting

Decreased ROM = Increased Court Reimbursement

The CMR software allows our radiologists to view and enlarge all range of motions (ROM) for demonstrative comprehension for doctors, patients, attorneys, and insurance companies. The CMR will cite and reference Learned Treatises and research studies to correlate with the aberrant joint motion.

Widening of the posterior disc

Widening of the anterior disc

Anterior Longitudinal Ligament

The integrity of the anterior longitudinal ligament  (ALL) is demonstrated by a backward (posterior) movement (translational motion) of one vertebrae over the vertebrae below or by the anterior widening of the intervertegral disc space (increased disc angle or angular motion). By measuring these discrepancies of George’s Line (Yochum & Rowe, pg. 149). AOMSI can be quantified and correlated with the AMA Guidelines (5th edition, pg. 378-79).

Posterior Longitudinal Ligament

The integrity of the posterior longitudinal (PLL) is demonstrated by a  forward (anterior) movement (translational motion) of one vertebrae over the vertebrae below or by the posterior widening of the intervertegral disc space (increased disc angle or angular motion). By measuring these discrepancies of George’s Line (Yochum & Rowe, pg. 149). AOMSI can be quantified and correlated with the AMA Guidelines (5th edition, pg. 378-79).

Alar/Accessory Ligament

 

The integrity of the alar and accessary liagments are quatified by the lateral overhang of C1 on C2 or by the changes in the para-odontoid spaces.  These mechanical alterations can be represented through symptomatology such as cervicogenic headaches, occipital neualgia, cervical neualgia, etc...
