In this module on the anatomy of the wrist in 3T MRI, we have captioned over 340 anatomical structures in 208 MR images of the wrist and 3D reconstructions of the carpal bones.
This module is an aid to learning and daily practice of magnetic resonance imaging of the wrist, aimed rather at a specialised audience (radiologists, surgeons, rheumatologists and physicians specialising in musculoskeletal imaging).
Images of the wrist in 3T MRI and in 3D
The MRI images of the elbow were derived from a healthy volunteer. Image acquisition was performed on a 3 Tesla MRI with a thickness of 4 mm in contiguous sections. We used the commonly used weightings (and RFP-FatSat T1) and impacts (axial, coronal and sagittal) in medical imaging studies of the wrist.
The 3D images of the wrist joint and carpal bones are three-dimensional reconstructions obtained from a scanner.
Captions for the anatomical structures of the carpus
340 anatomical structures of the wrist have been captioned, accessible via the "anatomical structures" tab:
The Details tab
This allows the user to choose to display all the anatomical legends of the wrist region or to only display the most important anatomical structures in order not to overload the images.
The weightings tab
Allows the display of this MRI scan of the wrist in T1 or DP-FatSat weighting
Language and anatomical terminology
We have used the Terminologia Anatomica to caption for all the anatomical structures, with translations into English, French, Japanese, German, Chinese, Portuguese, Russian, Czech and Spanish.
