Here's one method using control point editing:

Eventually there will be a specific spiral tool to make this a lot easier, but I'm not exactly sure when it will be available, maybe not for v1...

After you have created your sprial, draw a circle and make sure that the circle is not inside the bounding box of the spiral, in other word - move it away from the sprial. Now select the circle and do a sweep, and MoI will automatically place the circle perpendicular to the spiral for the sweep. Let me know if this part needs more explanation.
