Benefits Of Musculoskeletal MRI!

Benefits Of Musculoskeletal MRI!

Gone are the days when bone ailments and damages were detected based on the experience and superficial conversations made by the physicians. These days with the advent of radio waves, medical science has made significant progress that has enabled a detailed overview of what exactly is going on inside your body and what should be the most relevant treatment in that regard. Magnetic Resonance Imaging or more commonly known as MRIs are a boon when it comes to diagnosing orthopedic and musculoskeletal complaints.

Common Uses of the Procedure:

MR imaging is usually the best choice for examining the:

  1. body’s major joints.
  2. spine for back pain
  3. soft tissues (muscles, tendons and ligaments) and bones of the extremities.

MR imaging is typically performed to diagnose or evaluate:

  • degenerative joint disorders such as arthritis.
  • tears of the menisci, ligaments and tendons (knee) or rotator cuff and labrum (shoulder and hip).
  • fractures (in selected patients).
  • spinal disk abnormalities (such as a herniated disk).
  • the integrity of the spinal cord after trauma.
  • sports-related injuries and work-related disorders caused by repeated strain, vibration or forceful impact.
  • infections (such as osteomyelitis).
  • tumors (primary tumors and metastases) involving soft tissues around the joints and extremities (such as muscles, bones and joints).
  • pain, swelling or bleeding in the tissues in and around the joints and extremities.
  • congenital malformations of the extremities in children and infants.
  • developmental abnormalities of the extremities in children and infants.
  • congenital and idiopathic (developing during adolescence) scoliosis prior to surgery.
  • tethered spinal cord (abnormal stretching in the spinal cord) in infants and children.

The Process:

In this process, X-rays and radio waves are subjected upon the affected region to examine the conditions of the bones, tissues, muscles and also detect the presence of tumours. This is majorly a non-invasive test and is painless. It does not use ionizing rays and therefore does not harm the body in any which way. The MRIs capture a detailed picture of the organs and the internal body structures and then transmit them onto a computer screen for the physician to monitor the inside story.

The Benefits: 

  1. MRI is an imaging technique that does not require exposure to radiation.
  2. MR images of the soft-tissue structures of the body (particularly muscles, bones and joints) are often clearer and more detailed than with other imaging methods. This detail makes MRI an invaluable tool in early diagnosis and evaluation of many conditions, including tumors.
  3. MRI can distinguish abnormal tissues from normal tissues much more accurately than most other imaging tests (x-ray, CT, etc.).
  4. MRI enables the discovery of abnormalities that might be obscured by bone with other imaging methods.
  5. The contrast material used in MRI exams is less likely to produce an allergic reaction than the iodine-based contrast materials used for conventional x-rays and CT scanning.
  6. MR images allow the physician to clearly see even very small tears and injuries to tendons, ligaments and muscles and some fractures that cannot be seen on x-rays and CT.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Exercise helps a lot for sciatica. Exercises to be done while lying down. Avoid sitting for longer time at one place. Do stretching exercises, releaving compression from nerve is must. Yes it can be solved by yoga and physiotherapy depending on cause.

Dynamic pelvic floor magnetic resonance imaging (mri) and sacrum with pelvis mri is same or different.

Dynamic pelvic floor magnetic resonance imaging (mri) and sacrum with pelvis mri is same or different.
Both are different. Dynamic mri is used to diagnose prolapse, incontinence, pelvic pain or constipation, and allows for a rapid evaluation with greater patient comfort than previous studies used to evaluate such conditions. Dynamic pelvic mri provides a three-dimensional image a pelvic mri with sacrum scan is a useful test to look for. Birth defects injury or trauma in the pelvic area abnormal x-ray results pain in the lower abdominal or pelvic region unexplained difficulties urinating or defecating cancer (or suspected cancer) in your reproductive organs, bladder, rectum, or urinary tract for women :- infertility irregular vaginal bleeding lumps or masses in your pelvic area (such as uterine fibroids) unexplained pain in your lower belly or pelvic area for men:- an undescended testicle lumps in the scrotum or testicles, or swelling in that area.

Stage 1 and stage 2 have excellent success rates. Even in stage 3,we can technically cure the patient, but the risk of recurrence is high because of the advanced nature of the disease. A biopsy and mri is sufficient to decide the stage of the disease and treatment can be planned accordingly
