Dr. Daniel Richter and Digital Motion X-Ray helped us detect a patient’s broken neck that was not seen on regular x-rays or MRI”

Jose continued to have headaches 6 months after his car accident. We had taken regular x-rays at the beginning of the case and the report from the medical radiologist was “normal”. 3 months later he was still experiencing neck pain, headaches and tingling in his arm and hand. A MRI was ordered and it also came back normal. We knew the patient was injured during his car accident and there was more to his injuries that what conventional testing was showing. We decided to order a Digital Motion X-Ray (DMX).

This technology was pretty new to Minnesota but we were convinced Jose had ligament damage which was causing his bad headaches. Were we surprised!
Not only did the patient have multiple permanent ligament injuries from the accident, he also had a broken neck! His second cervical vertebrae was fractured and had been missed on both static x-rays and MRI.

The determining factor in finding Jose’s injuries was movement. His pain was mostly when he moved, but all of his previous testing was performed when he was standing still. Digital Motion X-Ray is a moving test and as soon as Jose started moving, his injuries were clearly seen. This made all the difference in not only finding his injuries but also knowing how best to treat him. Without Dr. Daniel Richter and the DMX, we would never have known the seriousness of Jose’s injuries or been able to prove them to the insurance company.
