Darrin Bauer, grateful patient
Speedy MRI provides detailed images
X-rays showed I had what they thought was degenerative disc disease and arthritis in my back with a bulge in the spine. Some back injuries that aren't caught quickly and treated right can become permanent; so I stayed off work, started on medication to ease the pain, and waited for the MRI that my doctor felt was the next step to take.
I didn't have to wait long. Just a week after they contacted me with the X-ray results I was in for my MRI. I was shocked it happened so fast.
The MRI confirmed what the X-rays had shown-but with much better detail. Hopefully, with the help of the medication I'll be able to do my job properly. We'll see how it goes.
