MRI Injection
« on: November 06, 2004, 12:53:09 PM »
Hi,

I am booked for an MRI scan next Friday and was just wondering about the injection they give.

do they always give an injection for a knee MRI? Also where do they do it exactly?

I know it sounds sad but I am afraid of needles and the thought of it seems worse than an op!

Any advice?

thanks,

Nick

They do sometimes inject contrast for the MRI's if they are trying to rule out cartilage damage.  It's far more common for the shoulder than the knee.
