About The Neurography Institute
The Neurography Institute was founded in May 2000 to serve as the licensee and provider of the patented MR neurography medical scanning technology.
Based in Santa Monica, California, the Neurography Institute serves thousands of patients worldwide each year, conducting specialized scans and providing their physicians with expert readings of the results that help determine the best course of action for the patient's condition.
Invented by Dr. Aaron Filler and protected by United States patents numbered 5,560,360 (awarded October 1, 1996) and 5,706,813 (awarded January 13, 1998), MR neurography is a specialized form of medical scanning using magnetic resonance imaging to see otherwise "invisible" soft tissues of the nervous system.
In addition to the fine aspects of the collection of the image, there are a variety of specialized computer processing steps required to complete the process of presenting a detailed image of the nerve for review. The final image is then interpreted by a specially trained and credentialed neuroradiologist. These doctors have special experience in reviewing and anlyzing nerve images.
