A wrist magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is noninvasive diagnostic test used to access the wrist for an injury or condition. The test is used to diagnose a problem and to provide the physician with information on how to treat such problems. Often, a wrist MRI may be prescribed to assess a wrist injury. The MRI will be able to detail any injuries to bones, ligaments or surrounding tissues in the area. Sometimes, an individual may undergo the test for unexplained wrist pain. In this event, the test will be used to pinpoint the cause of pain, so that proper treatment may be administered.
