5 Stages of Diagnostic Examination

If you are diagnosed through our 5 stages of diagnostic test,
the treatment success rate is more than 90%.

The five stages of diagnostic test process are very important to find the exact cause and determine appropriate treatment method. Through an accurate and precise diagnosis and treatment, we can increase the success rate of treatment by performing the most appropriate stage of treatment without sequelae and complications based on the patient’s condition.

    STEP 5 Spine nerve function test

1st StepConsultation and X-rays

Diagnostic accuracy50%
  • Consultation and X-rays

    The initial diagnosis is made with the patient's medical history, symptoms, neurological examination, physical examination, and dynamic spine radiography, which shows the alignment of the spine.

    Spinal x-ray is a very important examination in diagnosing the degree of degeneration of spinal bones, discs and joints, actual curvature, whether you have scoliosis or kyphosis, and instability of the spine during flexion and extension.

  • Consultation and X-rays

    EOS X-ray Imaging System

    EOS Imaging Scan is an innovative ultra-low dose 2D/3D X-ray imaging system.
    An EOS Scan shows natural, weight-bearing posture and allows specialists to evaluate spinal alignment and interactions between the spine and the rest of the musculoskeletal system.

    • Lower patient dose (one tenth of normal x-ray)
    • 3D whole spine imaging while standing
    • Fast and accurate

2nd StepMRI ScansTo check soft tissues, intervertebral discs and nerves

Diagnostic accuracy60%


Advantages of Wooridul’s MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)

MRI uses a strong magnetic field and radio waves to generate images of parts of the body. MRI provides better soft tissue contrast and can differentiate between fat, water, muscle, and other soft tissue. Especially, spinal nerves, discs and soft tissue are clearly visible from the side.

  • Increased diagnostic accuracy based on superfine images
  • Increased patient comfort with less noise
  • Saved scanning time

3rd StepCT ScansTo check vertebrae, ligament calcification and spinal joints

Diagnostic accuracy70%
CT Scans

CT, Computed Tomography

CT uses specialized X-ray equipment to produce cross-sectional images or “slices” of the body.
It contains more detailed information than conventional x-rays.
CT provides clear images of spinal bones, soft tissue and calcified lesions.

4th StepMR MyelograpyTo check spinal cord and spinal canal

Diagnostic accuracy80%
MR Myelograpy
  • Normal
  • Compressed
  • Blocked
  • Multi-level Stenosis

MR myelography uses a non-invasive magnetic resonance technique that allows specialists to evaluate the spinal canal and spinal cord without injecting a contrast agent into the subarachnoid space and shows the area where the nerve is compressed in detail.

  • No pain during the test
  • No side effect
  • Prompt diagnosis by a specialist available
  • Helping the patient and their families to understand

5th StepSpinal nerve function test

Diagnostic accuracy90%
Spinal nerve function test

Spinal nerve function test

Spinal nerve function tests such as electromyography, motion analysis, and digital infrared thermal imaging can more accurately identify the lesion causing the patient’s symptoms. This can increase the accuracy of diagnosis and the success rate of treatment.

  • Injection therapy
  • DITI (Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging)
  • Provocation Discography
  • EMG (Electromyography)
  • Centaur Test
  • 3-Dimensional Motion Analysis
After 5 Stages of diagnostic tests Appropriate treatment should be provided depending on the patient's condition. Learn more about treatments
