There are many diagnostic facilities and physicians offering a study known as a digital motion x-ray (DMX). The science behind a DMX study is hardly new or unique, in fact videofluoroscopy has been around for many years. However, it was not until recently that physicians began utilizing this science to illustrate acceleration deceleration injuries (commonly referred to as whiplash) in their patients. It has become commonplace for physicians who treat car accident victims to hear complaints of severe neck pain even in the absence of cervical pathology found in an MRI study of the cervical spine.
Let’s take a look at the advantages of a DMX study over a cervical MRI. Keep in mind that I am a proponent of obtaining both:
I have found DMX studies to be extremely useful in the presentation of a cervical injury case. In the event that your client/patient displays significant neck symptomatology but an absence of pathology in an MRI study, DMX can be most useful to illustrate the injury your client/patient has sustained.
