Diagnosing your injuries just became more accurate, faster and easier at Perimeter Orthopaedics. Our new MRI, conveniently located in our clinic, provides our patients with high resolution imaging without having to go off site. The O-Scan Dedicated MRI for Extremities covers limbs and joints, including the ankle, knee, calf, foot, hand, wrist, and elbow. This new imaging equipment allows our physicians to closely view soft tissue injuries, as well as damage to muscles, tendons and cartilage, including strains, tears and inflammation that can't be seen on a traditional x-ray.
The open design and reclining patient chair provides a relaxing, comfortable, non-claustrophobic experience, and there is no harmful radiation for which to be concerned.
Immediately diagnose knee injuries:
- ACL injuries
- Meniscal tears
Evaluate damage to foot & ankle:
- Tendon injuries such as Achilles tendonitis
- Ligament injuries such as ankle sprains and strains
- Reveal infection, abscess and osteomyelitis (infection of the bone)
Our O-Scan MRI is one more imaging tool in addition to X-Ray and CT imaging with PedCAT™ all available on site at Perimeter Orthopaedics.
