What is Orthopedic MRI?
In orthopedics, MRI is an invaluable tool for examining bones, joints, and soft tissues such as cartilage, muscles, and tendons. It allows for a comprehensive analysis of injuries, structural abnormalities, and many kinds of orthopedic conditions. Musculoskeletal MRI is also an important tool for surgical planning or assessing the results of orthopedic surgery, and for treatments of injuries and degenerative disorders.
Our orthopedic imaging team has extensive experience with conditions including:
- Fractures from sports or work-related injuries
- Inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis
- Cartilage, ligament and tendon tears
- Joint deterioration (osteoarthritis)
- Spinal injuries, disk abnormalities and back pain
- Infections and tumors involving tissues around the joints
ZP also performs MR arthrograms, a specialized test to visualize joints in great detail.
MRI for Sports Medicine
Our team of musculoskeletal radiologists specialize in sports medicine and MR imaging, and are trained to diagnose athletes who have suffered an injury on the field. These commonly include ligament tears and bone fractures. One of the more common injuries we see is a torn ACL or MCL, experienced many times by soccer and football players.
Our radiologists will work closely with your physician to provide significant input regarding an accurate diagnosis, along with important information to help manage and treat the injury. Our musculoskeletal radiologists can diagnose your sports injury correctly the first time. Our goal is to help get the athlete back on the field, but when the time is right, preventing the injury from worsening or reoccurring.
