Overview of MRI Right Knee Joint

What is MRI Right Knee Joint?

An MRI of the knee joint is used to visualise the bones of the knee joint along with the surrounding soft tissues like the cartilages, tendons, ligaments, muscles and blood vessels. The knee joint includes the lower end of the upper leg bone (femur), the upper end of the lower leg bones (the tibia and fibula), the kneecap (patella), and the surrounding soft tissues. The MRI scan uses strong magnetic and radio waves to create detailed and clear multiple images of the knee joint. Multiple images are captured during the MRI scan which can be stored on an electronic device and then further printed on a film. The whole MRI scan procedure takes about 40-60 minutes.

Patient Concerns about MRI Right Knee Joint

Frequently Asked Questions about MRI Right Knee Joint

Q. What are the drawbacks of a bone X-ray?
X-ray images give a very clear view of the bones. However, it does not provide a good visual image of the soft tissues like tendons, muscles or fat tissue under the skin. Even the bone microfractures or complicated spine injuries are not clearly visible on the X Ray images. Apart from this, it also exposes the patient to some amount of radiations but the benefit of the information gained from an X-ray image outweighs the risk of radiations.
Q. Who interprets the X-ray results?
The interpretation of an X-Ray image is carried out by a radiologist who analyses or reads the X-ray image and prepares a report of the findings which is shared with the patient.
