Guyon Canal Syndrome
Whilst varying among institutions, a typical wrist MRI protocol set employs a small field of view (80 to 120 mm), and section thickness varies from 1.5mm to 3mm.
Because an MRI shows soft tissue as well as bone, it is particularly useful for diagnosing injuries to the cartilage, tendons and ligaments, as well as areas of swelling.
Through the technological advantages of optimized MRI components (dedicated coils, gradients, sequences, etc.), better signal-to-noise ratio, contrast, and resolution of the image is achieved, all of which increase diagnostic accuracy.
Different imaging planes and MRI sequence weighting are utilized to visualize different structures of the hand and wrist, allowing optimal assessment of abnormalities according to the image contrast.
The table below demonstrates the default imaging set used with the WristView™ system and is considered the standard for wrist MRI imaging. The plane and weighting can, of course, be altered and configured according to preference.
*When interpreted by a trained physician, these images provide information that can be useful in determining a diagnosis.
