Does everybody with back pain need an MRI scan?

Most low back pain patients can be treated without an MRI, unless infection, fracture, or tumor is suspected. Usual back pain patients aged 30 to 50 are very unlikely to have such conditions. Patients who do not respond to initial conservative therapies (physical therapy, etc) and further interventions such as injections or surgery are considered, an MRI scan is indicated.
