MRI Imaging of the Foot and Ankle

Foot MRIThe foot and ankle are among the hardest of all areas to image because of the complex, three-dimensional anatomy. MRI with its multiplanar capabilities, excellent soft-tissue contrast, non-invasiveness and lack of ionizing radiation, has become a valuable tool in evaluating patients with foot and ankle problems.

With our new state-of-the-art, high-field scanners we are able to better detect and diagnose the following conditions:

  • Tendon Injuries
  • Ligament Injuries
  • Cartilage Injuries
  • Fractures
  • Tumors (Soft-Tissue and Bone)
  • Infection
  • Avascular Necrosis Arthritis

Foot MRIDedicated multi-channel foot and ankle coils further optimize signal-to-noise ratios for better clarity and these coils facilitate optimal patient positioning. Each unit offers “feet-first” scanning which will allow for maximum patient comfort, efficiency and the lowest claustrophobic rates ever.
