NOCISCAN-LS helps identify degeneration and pain between discs in the lumbar spine. By harnessing the power of MR Spectroscopy (MRS), NOCISCAN-LS can help physicians make more informed decisions about a patient’s treatment path, including which disc needs surgery, and which does not.
Who We Are
Nocimed was founded on the premise that when it comes to low back pain diagnosis and related patient management, there has to be a better way. By comparing differences in degenerative pain biomarkers between lumbar discs in patients receiving MRS exams of those tissues, this new information helps doctors to be better informed when they diagnose disc pathologies along the lumbar spine.
Low back pain is the single leading cause of disability worldwide, with 31 million Americans suffering at any given time. It’s also the #1 reason for missed work.
