Monterey Spine & Joint MRI was developed to offer our community a high-value option for MRI imaging. We combine excellent quality imaging with lower cost to create an MRI center that appeals equally to patients and referring physicians in the region. We work with only the best specialty trained radiologists who read our scans. Our Director of Radiology, Jennifer Lin MD, is a specialty trained musculoskeletal radiologist. Her training was at one of the nation’s finest MRI fellowship programs located in San Francisco, CA. She works collaboratively with the physicians and surgeons at Monterey Spine & Joint, who provide clinical information if necessary, which aids in her interpretation of the MRI studies. This collaboration provides you, the patient, with the most accurate diagnosis and treatment possible. Our goal at Monterey Spine & Joint MRI is to make you comfortable during your MRI. Taylor Ahlborg, our MRI technologist, was hired specifically because of his excellent training and his emphasis on customer service. He will help you through the process making you feel comfortable and relaxed. Monterey Spine & Joint specifically purchased a state of the art MRI machine with a larger bore (this means more space around you) to help reduce patient anxiety and improve comfort. Unlike open MRI’s that have some degradation in the image quality, the large bore model combines the best of both worlds; more comfort with an excellent image.



Taylor Ahlborg

MRI technologist, R.T (MR) (ARRT), (MR) ARMRIT

I am originally from Superior, Wisconsin and moved to the Monterey Peninsula over 10 years ago after completing a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics. I fell in love with the area while working for the Pebble Beach Company. I transitioned to MRI when I wanted a career change to utilize my passion for math and physics. After completing an Associate of Science Degree in MRI from the Gurnick Academy of Medical Arts I received my MRI certification with the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists. I have been with Monterey Spine and Joint since the completion of the MRI center in December of 2017. I have experience with many musculoskeletal applications in MRI imagining and I have conducted training with the Siemens Healthineers at their U.S. Headquarters in Gary, NC. I am passionate about patient comfort, care, and MRI image quality. In my spare time I enjoy tennis, golf, and traveling with my wife.


Our services

Monterey Spine and Joint MRI suite is ACR accredited in musculoskeletal, brain and spine imaging. The MRI is a Siemens brand MAGNETOM Espree 1.5T magnet. The magnet has a generous open design with a 70 cm bore diameter, and the shortest length of 125 cm. 60% of MRI exams done here will leave the patient’s head outside of the magnet. This open design will alleviate any feeling of claustrophobia in almost all patients. As we are a part of the Monterey Spine and Joint medical practice our exams are directly accessible after completion by your treating Monterey Spine & Joint physician.
