Overview of MRI Left Thigh

What is MRI Left Thigh?

An MRI scan of the thigh is used to visualise the thighbone and the surrounding soft tissues like cartilage, tendon, ligaments, muscles and blood vessels. The MRI scan uses strong magnetic and radio waves to create detailed and clear pictures of the thigh. 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.

Preparation for MRI Left Thigh

  • 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.

Why Get Tested for MRI Left Thigh?

  1. To diagnose the cause of leg pain which is long standing
  2. To diagnose the fracture of the thighbone
  3. To confirm any abnormal finding of the X-ray
  4. To confirm any abnormal growth of the thigh muscles or surrounding soft tissues
  5. To diagnose any birth defects of the thigh
  6. To confirm any infections of the bones, muscles or the other soft tissue
  7. To diagnose any bone marrow abnormalities like avascular necrosis.

Patient Concerns about MRI Left Thigh

Frequently Asked Questions about MRI Left Thigh

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.
