Chapter 106 discusses the normal MRI anatomy and imaging findings of the major and common disorders leading to internal derangements of the wrist and hand including osteonecrosis (ON) of the scaphoid and lunate bones, tendon and ligamentous injuries, and common nerve entrapment syndromes. The anatomy of the wrist and hand is complex. A wide spectrum of traumatic, inflammatory, and degenerative conditions affects the wrist and hand. High-resolution MRI of the wrist and hand and MRA of the wrist provide excellent evaluation of the osseous and soft tissue structures and in many instances represent the study of choice. Radiography, CT, arthrography, CTA, and diagnostic US represent the alternative and/or complementary imaging methods in the evaluation of these structures.
