Introducing NOCISCAN-LS™: Taking the pain out of spine pain diagnosis

What We Do

NOCISCAN-LS™ is a non-invasive, painless, radiation-free, objectively quantitative test that identifies the relative differences between chemical biomarkers for degeneration and pain between discs in the lumbar spine. While standard MRI shows anatomic structures that may be problematic, NOCISCAN-LS harnesses the power of MR Spectroscopy (MRS) to show which discs have the most painful chemicals – and to what degree.


  • Standard MRI images can help physicians identify potential morphological reasons why a disc may be painful
  • NOCISCAN-LS compliments standard MRI to quantify biochemical markers that may be associated with a painful disc and presents them in an objective, intuitive report
  • Uses non-invasive, painless, no-dose (non-ionizing radiation) MR exams
  • Additional painful chemical information may help doctors, in combination with other patient information, to better diagnose and treat the source of pain – which may lead to improved outcomes for pain relief and quality of life


  • A revolutionary tool that can help aid doctors in diagnosing lumbar back pain
  • Performed on widely available Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Scanners
  • Fast! Typically only about 30 minutes for a three-disc exam
  • Cloud-based processing engine processes exam data and automatically returns report to the physician

About Us

Nocimed harnesses the existing power of Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS) for non-invasive, objective quantification of relative chemical differences in tissues applied to assess the relative chemical biomarkers for tissue degeneration and pain.
