What is an Shoulder MRI Scan?
An MRI shoulder scan is a type of medical imaging that uses powerful magnets and radio waves to produce detailed images of the shoulder. This type of scan gives doctors an in-depth look at your bones as well as soft tissues of your body, including muscles, ligaments, tendons, and even nerves and blood vessels. Additionally, MRI shoulder scans allow doctors to diagnose other potential problems found in other imaging tests such as X-rays. Overall, MRI shoulder is an invaluable tool for diagnosing unexplained pain or even to understand the condition causing shoulder symptoms.
When and why is an MRI Shoulder Scan Prescribed?
MRI shoulder scan is always prescribed when the doctor wants to know the reason for pain and in case of injuries that trouble your shoulder. This scan is performed to identify problems like dislocation of the shoulder joints, arthritis, rotate cuff tears, pain and swelling, tumors or infections and decreased range of joint. In addition to diagnosing existing conditions, MRI scans can help your doctor to track the effect of surgeries, medications and physical therapy on your shoulder.
