Abstract

Elbow derangements are common. Clinical examination is supplemented by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for optimal diagnostic assessment of such disorders. 3-dimensional (3D) imaging is feasible on newer MR scanners in acceptable acquisition times. Isotropic high-resolution 3D MRI affords multiplanar reconstructions and aids in diagnostic evaluation of elbow disorders and pre-/post-surgical assessments. The article details technical considerations of 3D elbow MRI and discusses its role in diagnostic evaluation of elbow disorders with relevant comparisons to 2D MRI and emphasizes as to how such advanced imaging assists in pre- and post-surgical assessments of tendon and ligament derangements.
