Can you see nerve damage in an MRI?

Spine (Fig. 3). MRI is sensitive to changes in cartilage and bone structure resulting from injury, disease, or aging. It can detect herniated discs, pinched nerves, spinal tumors, spinal cord compression, and fractures.

Subsequently, one may also ask, can an MRI detect cancer of the spine?

Brain or spinal cord tumor biopsy. Imaging tests such as MRI and CT scans may show an abnormal area that is likely to be a brain or spinal cord tumor. But often these scans can't tell exactly what type of tumor it is. This can only be done by removing some of the tumor tissue in a procedure called a biopsy.
