Podiatric MRI in Southeastern Pennsylvania
Modern Equipment & Technology for Optimal Health Care
If you are suffering from foot or ankle discomfort, an MRI may help us diagnose the problem. MRI stands for magnetic resonance imaging. Unlike X-rays and CT scans, MRIs do not use radiation. Instead, they are engineered to produce 3D images with radio waves and a large magnet. They are excellent at portraying soft tissues, such as the ones in your ankle or foot. This allows us to take an inside look at your injuries or ailments and determine the best course of action.
An MRI typically takes 60 to 90 minutes and we can perform the scan at our office. MRIs are most commonly used to diagnose an ailment, though we do sometimes request additional scans to monitor the progress of our patients during treatment.
If you need a podiatric MRI in Southeastern Pennsylvania, feel free to call our office at (215) 392-4009.

Who Should Get an MRI?
An MRI may be a good choice if you have:
- Cartilage tears
- Tendon injuries
- Pulled, stretched, or strained ligaments
You may want to avoid an MRI if you have metal in your body such as:
- Cochlear implants
- Metal eye fragments
- Implanted pumps
- Aneurysm clips
- Artificial heart valves
- A pacemaker
- Electronic stimulators
- Pins or screws
- Artificial limbs
In most cases, patients with dental fillings, tubal ligation clips, hip replacements, dental bridges, and knee replacements still qualify for an MRI.
How Should I Prepare?
Make sure to tell your doctor if you have any health problems before your scan. You should also inform your doctor if you are pregnant, have asthma, have any food or medication allergies, or recently had surgery. No metal is allowed in the MRI room. This is because the machine utilizes a very strong magnet. Make sure to remove any jewelry prior to your appointment.
Reach out to Bux-Mont Foot & Ankle Care Centers at (215) 392-4009 to schedule your MRI with our Southeastern Pennsylvania podiatrist. We have two locations: Warminster and Newtown.
