Overview of MRI Both Shoulder Joint
An MRI of the shoulder joint is used to visualise the bones of the shoulder joint along with the surrounding soft tissues like the tendons, ligaments, muscles and blood vessels. The area of the shoulder includes the shoulder joint, the collar bone (clavicle), the shoulder blade (scapula) and bone of the upper arm (head of humerus). The MRI scan uses strong magnetic and radio waves to create detailed and clear multiple images of the shoulder 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.
Why Get Tested
- To diagnose any fracture of the bones that form the shoulder joint
- To look for signs or changes of osteoporosis, deformities or abnormal growth of the bones
- To diagnose any suspected shoulder dislocation, frozen shoulder, and arthritis of this joint
- To diagnose infection of the bones (osteomyelitis) and the soft tissues (abscess)
- Pregnant women should inform their doctor (and x-ray technician) as the radiations may affect the fetus. If needed, precautions can be taken to lower the radiation exposure to the fetus.
- You may have to remove your jewelry and any metal objects which might interfere with the image.
- Depending on the area to be imaged, you may be asked to wear a hospital gown at the time of the X-ray.
Patient Concerns about MRI Both Shoulder Joint
Frequently Asked Questions
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.
