BAYVIEW RADIOLOGY ONLY BAY AREA DIAGNOSTIC CENTER TO OFFER MRI INNOVATION CREATING EARLIER AND MORE ACCURATE DIAGNOSES FOR BACK PAIN PATIENTS

BayView Radiology’s Exclusive Axial Loading MRI Procedure Gives Physicians More Accurate Information for Better Treatment Decisions

TAMPA – BayView Radiology, Tampa Bay’s premier diagnostic imaging center, announced today that it is the Bay area’s first and only medical imaging center to bring the advantages of more accurate diagnoses for patients experiencing back pain through its exclusive Axial Loading MRI procedure.

Axial Loading is an FDA approved procedure that provides additional, crucial patient information to physicians beyond traditional MRI’s. This detailed information can provide earlier diagnoses and more precise treatment programs for patients experiencing back pain such as Symptomatic Spinal Stenosis.

Symptomatic Spinal Stenosis is a condition due to narrowing in and around the spinal canal causing nerve pinching which leads to persistent pain, limping, lack of feeling in the lower extremities, and decreased physical activity.

Through Axial Loading, the patient puts on a specially designed vest and lies down comfortably on an MRI table. The doctor at BayView Radiology then applies Axial Loading to the patient, accurately simulating a “loaded” or upright position.

“Axial Loading accurately simulates an upright position for spinal CT and MRI procedures,” explains Cesar Seminario, Director of BayView Radiology.

“This provides physicians with the benefits of a more thorough examination and the patient is spared the discomfort of having to stand or sit in a potentially painful position for long periods of time while undergoing the MRI examination.”

Published clinical trials have shown that the Axial Loading procedure provides physicians with additional information beyond the standard MRI that can directly influence their treatment decisions.

“BayView Radiology is dedicated to utilizing the most accurate and effective procedures and technology available,” Seminario adds.

“We are proud of the fact that BayView Radiology is the only Tampa Bay medical center licensed to offer this Axial Loading procedure along with a high quality, high resolution MRI.

Seeking out and providing the best possible diagnostic examinations for better diagnoses and treatment solutions is proof positive of our commitment to high quality, superior comfort for faster recovery of our patients.”
