How do I know if I need an MRI?


An MRI is a high level tests that allows your doctor to see the injuries and damage to the soft tissues (tendons, masses, ligaments) or a more detailed evaluation of the bones for diagnoses like stress fractures.   We use an MRI when an X-ray or examination does not provide enough information to obtain an accurate diagnosis or when you are not responding to typical treatment protocols.
