MRI Frequently Asked Questions

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a common diagnostic tool used by physicians of all specialties. When ordered by Orthopaedic and Interventional Pain Management Physicians, it is used as a means of identifying musculoskeletal injury or conditions that cannot be visualized by x-ray or by physical examination or observation.  MRI scans differ from other diagnostic tests, such as x-ray, in that they show all of the soft tissues (muscles, ligaments, tendons, nerves, etc.) as well as the bony structures of the body part being scanned
