magnetic resonance imaging scan
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan
magnetic resonance imaging scan; MRI scan non-ionizing imaging modality; body part under investigation is subjected to electromagnetic pulses (hydrogen ions and protons align and emit detectable radio waves), building a tissue 'picture' in 3- or 5-mm-wide sections
T1-weighted (T1-W) MRI fat-containing tissues show as white; water-containing tissues show as dark areas
T2-W MRI used to identify pathologies, e.g. chronic compartment syndrome, all types of tendon and ligament pathologies, soft-tissue and bone infections, neuromas, plantar plate rupture
