Musculoskeletal imaging uses cutting-edge technology, including X-ray, computed topography (CT), ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), to help diagnose injuries, tumors and degenerative disorders of bones, joints and associated soft tissues.
Images may help diagnose or evaluate:
- muscle tears, masses or fluid collections
- ligament and tendon sprains or tears
- inflammation or fluid within joints
- degenerative joint disorders like arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis
- nerve entrapments such as carpal tunnel syndrome
- benign and malignant tumors in bones, muscles or joints
- spine and spinal disk abnormalities
- foreign bodies in soft tissue (such as splinters or glass)
- congenital malformations and developmental abnormalities in extremities
- bone infections
- ganglion cysts
