What is MRI Finger?
An MRI of the finger is used to visualise the bones of one or more fingers along with the surrounding soft tissues like the cartilages, tendons, ligaments, muscles and blood vessels. The MRI scan uses strong magnetic and radio waves to create detailed and clear multiple images of the finger. 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 is MRI Finger done?
- To diagnose the fracture of the bones of one or more fingers
- To diagnose suspected infection, osteoporosis, deformities or abnormal growth of the bones.
- To look for signs of suspected arthritis, degenerative changes or dislocation of the joints of the finger

Even the bone microfractures or complicated spine injuries are not clearly visible on the X Ray images.

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.
