MRI Scans

ATHLETIC INJURIES

Typical athletic injuries that are often diagnosed with MRI are achilles tendon tears, meniscus tears or stress fractures. MRI can:

  • Evaluate the nature and extent of an acute injury
  • Determine the cause of chronic or persistent symptoms after an injury
  • Evaluate patients with undiagnosed symptoms following injury

ACCIDENTS

Typical accident injuries that are often diagnosed with MRI are soft tissue injury (that did not show up on x-rays) or traumatic brain injuries. MRI can:

  • Determine the presence or absence of pathology relating to a traumatic event
  • Establish the nature and extent of the injury in the acute phase of injury

WORK-RELATED INJURIES

Typical work-related injuries that are often diagnosed with MRI are chronic or acute back pain or rotator cuff tears. MRI can:

  • Facilitate early intervention through accurate diagnosis and treatment of an injured worker
  • Increase the chances of successful rehabilitation
    Successful treatment and rehabilitation shortens the length of time the worker is away from work, and reduces disability premium costs. By investing in workers immediately following an injury, employers will save a great deal in the long term.
