Clinical applications of MR imaging in hand and wrist surgery.

Author information

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, New York University Medical Center, New York, USA.


MR imaging is emerging as an invaluable tool in the diagnosis of hand and wrist disorders. It is extremely accurate in the diagnosis of stage 1 Kienbock's disease when plain radiographs are equivocal and in evaluating bone and soft-tissue tumors of the hand and wrist. MR imaging is replacing arthrography as the imaging modality of choice for disruptions of the TFCC. With refined technology and improved resolution, abnormalities involving the intercarpal ligaments ultimately will be able to be detected with a high degree of precision.
