MRI Fore Arm With Contrast
What is MRI Fore Arm With Contrast?
A Magnetic Resonance Imagining (MRI) of the Fore Arm is used to visualize the bones and joints of the forearm along with the surrounding soft tissues like the cartilages, tendons, ligaments, muscles, and blood vessels. The area of the forearm includes the elbow, bones of the forearm (radius and ulna), and the wrist. The contrast helps in increasing the visibility of the internal organs and hence improves the sensitivity and diagnostic accuracy of the MRI scan.
This test is prescribed by the doctor to diagnose any fracture of the bones of the forearm and to diagnose suspected infection, osteoporosis, deformities, or abnormal growth of the bones.
