MRI TO DIAGNOSE INSTABILITY OR IMPINGEMENT

Post by runnergirl » Fri Jun 18, 2010 4:37 am

I was hoping you could help with a simple question. My daughter has suffered from patellar tendon problems (tendinosis) for 2 years. She has not responded to physio, autologous injections etc

They are now doing an MRI to check for patellar instability, hoffa syndrome etc. How can an MRI diagnose impingement and instability if she has to lay completely still during the process - the problems begin with movement - how can we tell if the patellar does any pinching etc if she doesnt move during the mri?
