Musculoskeletal MRI at Montclair Radiology
Musculoskeletal MSK Imaging - or musculoskeletal MRI - is the best way to diagnose and treat sports-related and traumatic injuries of the joints, bones, muscles and spine. It is also an integral part of diagnosing and treating osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, and other joint or muscle issues. It is the best way for your doctor to evaluate degeneration in your joints. Musculoskeletal MRI is usually ordered one time for injuries. If you have a disease that affects the musculoskeletal system, your doctor may make regular musculoskeletal MRIs a part of your treatment plan.
MRI doesn't use harmful radiation to create images. Instead, strong magnetic fields and radiofrequency waves (the same kind used in radio transmissions) are used to create images of the body. No harmful side effects have ever been reported from MRI.
