The skeletal muscle magnetic resonance imaging is used to study the joints ( ankle , knee , hip , wrist , elbow , shoulder ) and lower limb muscles.The types of study differ depending on the joint or muscles studied. In general, the patient is placed supine on the MRI table and a transceiver coil is placed around the area to be studied. In most cases, the MRI does not requires administration of the contrast medium extremity MRI in Sparta.

What is musculoskeletal MRI used for?
Musculoskeletal MRI is mainly used to study the soft parts that make up the joints. Provides important information about the tendons (e.g. the Achilles tendon in the ankle and the rotator cuff in the shoulder ), ligaments (in the knee ) and menisci (knee joint), wrist (useful for identifying carpal canal syndromes, cysts wrist, wrist and hand fractures , tendon inflammatory pathologies).
It is also useful for muscles (tears, strains, bruises, tumor lesions). It also gives information about the state of the bone , especially in traumatic and tumor pathology.
How MRI of the liver is performed
Before performing the examination, the nurse sets up a venous access on the patient’s arm to inject the Hepatospecific Contrast Medium through a catheter.
Once injected, the MDC is ready to perform its diagnostic function within a few minutes.
The patient lies down on a table that enters the tube of the MRI machine. For the success of the examination it is necessary that the patient remains immobile , in fact the liver study initially involves the acquisition of a series of images without contrast, which allow to delineate the tissue components of the lesion, integrated by the acquisitions after administration. of intravenous MDC.
