    Default Sinus Ct Scan Showing Cervical Spine Issue

    My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: NY
    Hello
    Been on WC Since 2005. This is the first time the insurance denied me an MRI of my cervical spine. Fusion of C4-7 and herniation of C3-4. Unrelated I had a Sinus CT scan that shows no disc between my C3-4, itís bone on bone. Would this be enough to demand a new MRI? Last MRI of cervical spine was 2016 with C3-4 herniation and nerve compression.

    Only a trained Radiologist can interpret those scans, unless that finding is in his report it's a non-issue.

    Would this be enough to demand a new MRI?
    Not sure of why another MRI would be needed, it wouldn't show anything more than what's already revealed.
    If your treating physician feels you need another MRI, he can request one - there must be a medical necessity.
