Brooklyn Elbow MRI

HealthQuest is a recognized multi-specialty healthcare-cum-diagnostic facility in Brooklyn, New York. The trained and licensed radiologists in this Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) accredited center employ the latest scanning techniques to ensure accurate results for elbow MRI.

Elbow MRI

– An Overview

MRI of the elbow is particularly useful for conducting a full range of diagnostic study of the joint. It helps to assess the type and extent of injury to the elbow, such as a tear in the soft tissues, especially the cartilage, tendons and ligaments, as well as areas with swelling. The scan report can help the physician establish or rule out the following medical conditions of the elbow:

  • Lateral Epicondylitis or tennis elbow
  • Posterior dislocation of the elbow
  • Medial Epicondylitis
  • Medial Instability
  • Osteochondral Injuries

High Resolution Imagery with Superior Accuracy

At HealthQuest, we use an open MRI scanner which is far more advanced than the closed version. It combines the use of radio waves, a powerful magnet and a computer to produce high resolution imagery with superior tissue contrast in a 3-D cross-section.

The superior MRI scanner can detect almost all abnormalities of the elbow and its surrounding regions where outdated diagnostic modalities such as CT, Ultrasound and X-rays fail. The duration of the MRI scan can range from fifteen minutes to one hour.

Advantages of Open MRI Scan for Elbow

  • No risks or complications
  • Spacious and comfortable environment
  • Ideal for the obese and claustrophobic
  • Suitable for adults and children
  • Low and muffled sound for reduced patient anxiety
