Injuries That Need Musculoskeletal Imaging

Musculoskeletal imaging is a painless procedure that includes the use of CT, MRI, ultrasound, or X-ray and gives radiologists a deep look into the muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, and joints. Not only can musculoskeletal imaging diagnose a range of injuries, but this procedure can also detect chronic conditions such as tendinitis and carpal tunnel syndrome. If you experience unexplainable pain, strains, tears, or even masses, musculoskeletal imaging in New Jersey from ImageCare Centers can provide you with answers.

Many injuries and disorders involving muscles, bones, tendons, blood vessels, nerves, and soft tissues, call for musculoskeletal imaging so they can be diagnosed and properly treated.

Common injuries and conditions that need musculoskeletal imaging include:

  • Biceps tendon injury
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Tennis elbow
  • Arthritis

There are several ways ImageCare Centers can perform musculoskeletal imaging. Our X-ray can diagnose a bone fracture, joint malalignment, arthritis, or the cause of other painful conditions. Ultrasounds can look at specific soft tissue structures and the blood flow in vessels within the soft tissues. It can also be used to guide injections for the delivery of medication such as corticosteroids into joints, tendons, bursas, cysts, ganglions, and neuromas. CT scans allow us to identify musculoskeletal injuries and conditions such as bone damage, lesions, or fractures, muscle damage, tumors, infections, blood clots, and internal bleeding. MRI can depict soft tissue injuries and abnormalities, such as joint inflammation and ligament tears. All of these options will be discussed with you upon your appointment to give you the best option for your specific injury or condition.
