Magnetic Resonance Imaging
MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) is a non-invasive imaging device used to diagnose abnormalities in the musculoskeletal system. These painless scans last no more than 40 minutes. This technology allows for quick and accurate evaluation of injuries of the upper and lower extremities including the knee, foot, ankle, hip, hand, wrist, elbow, shoulder and spine. The MRI creates 3D, internal images that help diagnose a wide variety of problems such as torn knee ligaments and cartilage, and torn rotator cuffs.
