MRI– Musculoskeletal For Examination Of The Body's Major Joints And Soft Tissues

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) uses radio waves and a strong magnetic field to provide detailed pictures of the internal organs and tissues. The parts of the musculoskeletal system that are most frequently imaged with Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) – Musculoskeletal are the spine, knee and shoulder. This imaging technique is also used to study almost every joint in the body, including the hips, wrists, and hands.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) – Musculoskeletal is the preferred choice for examination of the body's major joints, the spine for disk disease, and soft tissues of the extremities.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging Is Typically Performed To Detect Or Dignose:

  • Degenerative joint disorders such as arthritis and meniscus tears  
  • Spinal disk abnormalities
  • Pain, swelling or bleeding in the tissues in and around the joints and bones
  • Tumors involving bones and joints
  • Joint abnormalities due to trauma  
  • The integrity of the spinal cord after trauma
  • Fractures and sports-related injuries caused by repeated strain, vibration or forceful impact

Some Of The Benefits Of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) – Musculoskeletal Are As Given Below:

  • MRI is an imaging technique that does not require exposure to radiation
  • The images of soft-tissue structures of the body such as muscles, bones and joints are clearer and more detailed in case of MRI as compared to other imaging methods
  • MRI can more accurately distinguish abnormal tissues from normal tissues as compared to other imaging tests such as x-ray and CT scan
  • MRI enables the discovery of abnormalities that might be hidden by bone with other imaging methods.
  • MR images allow the physician to clearly see very small tears and injuries to tendons, ligaments and muscles and other fractures that cannot be seen on x-rays
However, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) – Musculoskeletal consumes more time to perform and is more expensive as compared to other imaging techniques.
