MRI Imaging of the Foot and Ankle
The 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
- Tumors (Soft-Tissue and Bone)
- Avascular Necrosis Arthritis
Dedicated 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.
