At Sterling Ridge Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine we offer imaging services in both offices so you don’t have to leave and go to the hospital or another clinic for your x-rays or MRI scans. Your physician will choose the most appropriate type of imaging for diagnosing orthopedic conditions and assessing the results of procedures.
Our MRI is an ACR Accredited MRI facility. This means that The MRI Accreditation Program reviewed and approved our staff’s qualifications, quality control, safety policies and image quality.
What is an MRI?
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a technique used to see a detailed view of internal body structures such as bones, ligaments and nerves. This is important for our orthopedic specialists to be able to see the details about what is happening inside of a joint or other area of your body. You may be given a contrast dye that will make it easier to see the difference between tissue and blood vessels, tumors or inflammation.
