Knee MRI Scan

Why use an mri scan for knees?

If you have a knee problem, your doctor may recommend an MRI scan. MRI scans use magnets and radio waves to take pictures of the knee joint. The images from an MRI are highly detailed, and provide more diagnostic information than X-rays or CT scans. Because MRI scanners do not use harmful radiation to take pictures, they are safer than X-rays or CT scans.

Description

Complete Diagnostic MRI of the Knee
This procedure involves lying in the MRI scanner for 25 minutes while the MRI technologist takes pictures of your knee.

The pictures are very detailed, showing the bones, tendons, muscles, ligaments, bone marrow, blood vessels, cartilage and nerves in the knee. The pictures also show the way the bones of your knee are aligned.

This test is often requested by a doctor when their patient has any of the following symptoms: knee pain, tenderness, instability, weakness, locking, a catching sensation during knee movement, swelling of the knee or a history of knee injury.

After the test is done, the images are reviewed by a radiologist (a specialist physician). The radiologist writes a report that describes what the MRI showed. The report is then sent to your doctor and to you if you would like a copy. Reports are normally issued within one to two business days of the MRI scan. If you need a report right away (same day) that can be arranged, please let our staff know when you schedule your appointment.
