InMotion Diagnostics and Radiology at SpineNevada

Spine Nevada's InMotion Diagnostics includes InMotion MRI, Vertebral Motion Analysis, Digital X-rays and Radiology.

The MRI at Spine Nevada is the G-Scan Brio by Esaote and specifically designed to offer the highest level spine and joint examination, including hips, knees, shoulders, elbows, wrists and ankles. Vertebral Motion Analysis (VMA) measures spine motion to test for instability and in contrast to traditional flex/ex x-rays, VMA assists patients through the complete spine bend, helping to avoid the "guarding". InMotion Diagnostics also includes digital and full body scoliosis X-rays and a full service Radiology team (as shown in photo).
