What is an MRI scan of the ankle?

MRI is an examination technique in which hundreds of images are made of your ankle. This provides a physician with a better view of any possible abnormality or disease than on an X-ray.

Why get an MRI scan of the ankle?

Many people experience pain in the ankle. In more than half of the cases, the symptoms occur due to practising sport. If you are having problems with your foot, you obviously want to know the cause as soon as possible. An MRI scan can provide a solution in this case. Pain in the ankle could be caused by a sprain, fracture or inflammation An MRI scan quickly identifies where the source of the pain is located. It provides you with more insight into the nature of the injury.: torn ankle ligaments, tendons, cartilage, bone fractures, wear/arthrosis and/or swelling of your anklet.

The magnetic field and the radiofrequency waves are not harmful to your health. During scanning, you lie on a comfortable couch, which is pushed into a kind of tunnel that is open at both the front and back. If you find lying in the tunnel claustrophobic, you may have someone with you in the MRI room. A nurse will be on stand-by to provide information and, if necessary, put you at ease. In addition, during the MRI scan, you have a bell that you can use to interrupt the scan in case of emergency.
