What is the procedure?
You lie down on a table that moves into the MRI-scanner, in supine position with your feet first. All of the above mentioned examinations the head stays out of the MRI. For each examination another coil is being used for better quality. The duration of the examinations is between 20 and 30 minutes. Performing a MRI can show us e.g. fractures, inflammations (rheumatic, overload, etc.), meniscus and/or cruciate ligament lesions or ligament lesions.
When is contrast material being used?
Contrast material intravenously is necessary when inflammation of the tendons or joints are suspected. It is also necessary for tumour diagnostics or necrosis.
