Diagnosing Head & Neck Sports Injuries With MRI

The incidence of head and neck injuries in athletes is on the rise, but traditional X-rays don’t always provide enough information for an accurate diagnosis. That’s why Smart Scan Medical Imaging offers magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to diagnose soft tissue injuries for athletes, as well as higher sensitivity for the bones than X ray. With MRI scans, physicians can get a detailed image of soft tissues, tendons, ligaments, and bones to accurately diagnose a wide range of sports-related injuries. 

The team at Smart Scan can use MRI to diagnose:

  • Concussions 
  • Soft tissue injuries, including muscle and ligament damage 
  • Dislocated joints

  • And more

Frequently Asked Questions

How does an MRI help to diagnose head & neck conditions?

The MRI machine uses a powerful magnetic field and radio waves to create highly detailed images of the body. It’s able to detect changes in the soft tissues of the body that may indicate inflammation or other abnormalities, allowing our radiologists to diagnose issues in the head and neck accurately and quickly. 

What is the difference between an MRI vs a CT scan?

MRI scans are best for examining soft tissues of the body, such as the nerves, while CT scans are better suited for looking at bones and other hard structures. MRI scans also have a much higher resolution than CT scans, which makes them ideal for capturing detailed images of the soft tissues in the body.
