MRI is the most sophisticated imaging modality that has revolutionized modern radiology and is often considered to be the best “one-stop shop” radiological scan for many applications. Our research-grade The GE Signa HDxT, is one of its kind in a private clinic in Patna, delivering world-class image quality with new quantitative capabilities to enable the translation of what was considered research into the clinical world.

WHAT IS AN MUSCULOSKELETAL IMAGING?

Musculoskeletal imaging is a subspecialty of diagnostic radiology which involves ordering and interpreting medical images of bones, joints, and associated soft tissues and diagnosing injuries and disease.

Musculoskeletal imaging radiologists use:
● X-rays/plain radiography;
● Fluoroscopy (a continuous X-ray that creates moving images of the functioning of joints and soft tissue);
● CT (computed tomography) scans;
● Ultrasound which is used to image the anatomy and function of soft tissue around bones and joints;
● MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scans;
● Imaging-guided pain management.

HOW DOES MUSCULOSKELETAL IMAGING WORK?

Our musculoskeletal (MSK) radiologists specialize in procedures to diagnose and treat bone and joint conditions. MSK procedures are guided by imaging techniques—such as fluoroscopy, CT, or ultrasound.

Musculoskeletal Radiology deals with the imaging of the body’s bones along with cartilage, connective tissue, joints, ligaments, muscles and tendons.

This Division of the Department of Radiology, part of the University of Michigan Health System, provides the full range of imaging and image-guided interventional procedures for the musculoskeletal system, which are read and interpreted by board-certified, fellowship-trained experts, who specialize in this type of radiology.

Frequently Asked Questions

Most X-ray scans of the musculoskeletal system do not require any special preparation.

You may be asked to take off some or all of your clothes. Furthermore, you may be asked to remove your jewelry, glasses, or other metal items on your body. The reason for this is the possibility of an overlap with structures of the body which makes the scan more difficult to analyze.

Radiological scans of bones is a painless diagnostic method.

You can feel discomfort due to lower temperatures in the room where the procedure is taking place because the room has to be cooled for the machine to function properly. Furthermore, discomfort may be caused by lying on the hard table of the X-ray machine or the uncomfortable position of the part of the body that is being scanned. Our engineer of medical radiology will help you find the optimal position for your body taking your status and necessary body position into account.
