MR imaging of ligaments and triangular fibrocartilage complex of the wrist.

Author information

  • 1National Musculoskeletal Imaging, 13798 Northwest 4th Street, Sunrise, FL 33325, USA.


Imaging of the wrist with MR imaging can be difficult because of the small size of this joint, its complex anatomy, and its sometimes poorly understood pathologic lesions. A recent study by Hobby and coworkers of 98 patients revealed that MR imaging of the wrist influences clinicians' diagnoses and management plans in most patients. This article summarizes the current diagnostic criteria that can be useful in interpreting abnormalities of the wrist ligaments and triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC) of the wrist in this difficult topic in joint MR imaging.
