The authors of this paper retrospectively reviewed magnetic resonance imaging of 103 spinal surgery patients to determine the utility of multiple MRI scans. Patients had stenosis without instability, neurological deficits, or disc herniations. No significant changes were found in the majority of patients. Clinically meaningful changes were found only if the MRI’s were performed more than one year apart.
