Pain is a subjective sensation. To date, validation of an individual's claim to be experiencing pain rested
on a history of injury, supportive physical exam, imaging studies, and evaluation by pain specialists. Functional MRI
has been shown by many researchers to be able to show increased brain activity in known pain sensory areas. Use of functional
neuroimaging finally allows for the objective documentation of the existence of pain. MMT has experience in the use of neuroimaging
to provide objective graphically illustrated fMRI scans to support claims of (acute inducible) pain. This information can
be used, among other things, to support / document injury claims.
