MRI Left Ankle Joint
What is MRI Left Ankle Joint?
An MRI Left Ankle Joint shows the bones of the joint and the tendons, ligaments, muscles, and blood vessels surrounding them. An MRI test involves a magnetic field and radio waves to produce a series of finely detailed and crystal-clear images.
The ultrasound imaging is unable to assess cartilage and joint injuries and also numerous fractures. Therefore, an MRI scan is frequently used to determine an ankle injury fully. Patients with pacemakers, intracranial aneurysm clips, or Cochlear implants cannot have an MRI because of the intense magnet used. An MRI Left Ankle Joint identifies any broken or fractured ankle bones and any soft tissue injuries, including ligaments, tendons, or muscles around the joint.
Why is MRI Left Ankle Joint done?
- To diagnose any broken/fractured bones of the ankle joint
- To diagnose any injury to the soft tissues like ligaments, tendons or the surrounding muscles
- To diagnose any suspected infection, osteoporosis, deformities or abnormal growth of the bones and arthritis (inflammation of the joints)
- To diagnose foot abscess (deep infections of the soft tissues) and osteomyelitis (infection of the bones)
