Why Choose an Orthopedic MRI Specialist? 

Orthopedic MRI specialists use MRI for high-quality images of soft tissue areas such as tendons, ligaments, and muscles. At Imaging Partners of St. Peters, our MRI scans produce very clear images of the spine and extremities, including the hand, wrist, elbow, shoulder, hip, knee, foot, and ankle.

Orthopedic MRI can help provide information for a fast and accurate diagnosis and possibly reduce the need for exploratory surgery or other diagnostic procedures. The types of MRIs we do that can help evaluate orthopedic injuries and conditions include:

Ankle MRI

Ankle sprain and instability can result from overstretching or tearing ligaments. An ankle MRI can help determine the extent of your injury so your doctor can explore the best treatment options for you.

Knee MRI

Knee injuries can results from sports, overuse, and aging. A knee MRI can help diagnose conditions such as:

Shoulder MRI

Shoulder injuries can stem from repeated movements from sports or work, muscle imbalance around the shoulder, and aging. Imaging Partners of St. Peters can use MRI to help diagnose shoulder conditions such as shoulder impingement syndrome, rotator cuff injuries, and arthritis of the shoulder so your doctor can determine the best treatment options for you.


People become more at risk for hip fractures and hip arthritis as they age. An MRI can provide a detailed view of the hip structure to help determine whether a fracture has occurred so that you can consider surgery or other treatments if needed. A hip MRI can also detect osteoarthritis within the joint.

Spine MRI

Spine injuries can result from aging or trauma. Imaging Partners of St. Peters can use spine MRIs—cervical spine MRI, lumbar spine MRI, and thoracic spine MRI—to figure out what may be causing your pain so your doctor can find the best way to help you lead a normal and active life again. Spine conditions that can MRI can help diagnose include:

Neck MRI

Neck pain can be caused by trauma, physical exertion, injury, or stress. It can also be related to such conditions as osteoarthritis, herniated discs, or a compressed, pinched, or irritated spinal cord or spinal nerves. A neck MRI will help determine the cause of neck pain so that appropriate treatment may be started.

Back MRI

Low back pain is a very common condition that can be caused by poor posture, aging, injuries, or degenerative diseases such as arthritis. A back MRI performed by our orthopedic MRI specialists can help to pinpoint the source of your lower back pain.

Brain MRI

For headache, head injuries and concussions, suspected stroke, or other issues with the head, a brain MRI can help to show tumors, cysts, bleeding, and other problems in and around the brain.

Elbow MRI

If you have elbow pain symptoms, an elbow MRI can be used to determine the source of the pain, which could be a ligament tear, cubital tunnel syndrome (ulnar nerve transposition), golfer’s elbow or tennis elbow, both of which are types of tendinitis.

Foot MRI

Chronic foot pain from an injury such as a fracture or a condition such as arthritis can be accurately diagnosed with a foot MRI.

Lower Extremity MRI

Stress fractures of the lower leg, Achilles tendon tears, and other leg issues can be evaluated with an orthopedic MRI.

Wrist MRI

Wrist pain can result from overuse, injury, or chronic conditions such as arthritis. A wrist MRI is useful in diagnosing wrist conditions as carpal tunnel syndrome, deQuervain’s tendonitis, wrist sprains, and wrist ligament injuries.

Hand MRI

The orthopedic MRI specialists at Imaging Partners of St. Peters are expert at evaluating hand pain stemming from a hand dislocation, a hand nerve injury, flexor and extensor tendon injuries, or arthritis.
