Objective. To determine the accuracy of MRI in the assessment of the radiographically occult scaphoid fracture. Design. This prospective study compared the sensitivity and specificity of MRI for detection of radiographically occult scaphoid fractures with bone scintigraphy (BS), the currently accepted imaging modality of choice. Consecutive patients with clinical signs of a scaphoid injury but no evidence of fracture on plain radiographs at presentation and after 7–10 days were evaluated by MRI… CONTINUE READING
