Dedicated non-contrast imaging of upper and lower limbs using non radiation techniques to emphasize soft tissue structures (ligaments, tendons, muscles) and bony structures.
Benefits of musculoskeletal MRI:
- No use of ionizing radiation
- Better tissue contrast when compared to conventional modalities such as Computerized Tomography
- Visualizes both bony and soft tissue structures (ligaments, tendons, muscles and nerves) well.
- Small field of view maximizes detail
