OBJECTIVE. With high-resolution 3-T MRI, the complex anatomy of the fingers can be imaged in exquisite detail to provide an accurate diagnosis of clinically important ligament and tendon injuries. CONCLUSION. We present our 3-T MRI protocol using a dedicated hand-and-wrist coil and review normal MRI anatomy of the fingers. We emphasize a systematic approach to the interpretation of finger MRI examinations and illustrate this approach with examples of tendon and ligament abnormalities.
