MRI hand and wrist

Request an appointment

    Injuries (dislocations of the wrist and hand), “tunnel syndrome” of the wrist and hand are the most common conditions when referring to a specialist. If necessary, a visual examination is supplemented by magnetic resonance imaging. MRI on the hand and wrist joint allows assessing the condition of all elements: tendons, cartilage, ligaments and articular heads. If there is inflammation or growth in the joint, the doctor will see it on a tomogram. During MRI on hand in Orlando, it is also possible to evaluate the condition of the vessels supplying the joints. This is the only method that can be used during the rehabilitation period after surgery, since this procedure is non-invasive and harmless. Children are recommended to undergo MRI arm in case of injuries, congenital anomalies, inflammatory processes of the hand and wrist joint.

    During the MRI

    Wrist MRI may take no more than half an hour. The scan can be done in two ways:

    Method 1. The patient will lie on their back on the MRI bed with the arm raised above their head. The patient will go into the machine head first and the exam may take up to 45 minutes.

    Method 2. The patient will lie on their stomach on the bed of the MRI, stretching his hand above their head.The patient will go into the machine head first and the exam may take up to 45 minutes. 

    During diagnostic imaging of the hand in Orlando, the MRI emits a specific mechanical noise, which is due to the peculiarities of the device’s operation. To avoid discomfort, the patient will be required to wear ear plugs.

    After Your MRI

    After the MRI is completed the images will be sent to the radiologist for a completion of the report. Once the report is complete it will be sent to the ordering physician. At that point the patient may refer back to the ordering physician for a copy of the results. A copy of the images may be requested during the MRI appointment, which will be provided in the form of a disc. Your wrist MRI in Orlando may be done at the diagnostic imaging center Touch of Health near you.
