My husband was concerned I mis-typed when I used the word "cervical". Just to clarify... (because my husband made an excellent point). I don't think it was enough to say that they were doing an MRI and checking his cervical along with brain, spine, etc. What I should say is his cervical spine...
No our son does not have a cervix. Can you imagine the phone call, "I'm sorry Mrs. _______, your son does not appear to have a cervix." Well, good. Because he shouldn't :)
The cervical spine begins at the base of the skull. Seven vertebrae make up the cervical spine with eight pairs of cervical nerves.
