MRI of the Hand and Fingers.

Abstract

Injuries of the hand and fingers occur commonly in professional athletes as well as weekend warriors. Magnetic resonance imaging plays a vital role in the evaluation of these injuries for accurate diagnosis, preoperative planning, potential complication, and follow-up during rehabilitation. A detailed analysis of these smaller structures necessitates optimal imaging quality coupled with comprehensive knowledge of the imaging anatomy. In this article, we discuss technical aspects and normal anatomy of hand and fingers imaging on magnetic resonance imaging. This section is followed by discussion of soft tissue and osseous injuries including mechanism of injury, clinical presentation, and imaging findings.
