MRI of the Foot
Basics: What is an MRI of the Foot?
An MRI of the foot is usually performed without contrast. Just a few years ago the overall quality of a typical MRI of the foot in the USA was relatively poor. Except for a few fellowship trained musculoskeletal radiologists, most image interpretations by radiologists were very basic and not very useful. The podiatrist and orthopedist were often left wanting more information. In the last few years, at least at some institutions, the situation has improved dramatically. As of May of 2007, our center was privileged to receive the very first dedicated foot coil for the Siemens 3T TRIO MRI. We are very experienced at performing MRI foot studies and with our new coil we can obtain vastly superior MR images of the foot. We are so confident that our product is far better than anything elses available, that we provide a money back guarantee to the patient, if the referring clinician does not agree with us that we provide the absolute best foot MRI in the northwest, including images and interpretation. Only fellowship trained musculoskeletal radiologists read our foot studies. Podiatrists and Orthopedist alike are astounded by our ability to clearly and vividly image tiny capsules, ligaments, and pathologies not visible in other MRI studies. We are thrilled to provide this service.
