Abstract :

Musculoskeletal tuberculosis has high incidence and is seen with high frequency by health care professionals working in India. Tuberculosis of bones and joints can have varied radiological appearances. — Conventional radiographs are the usual initial imaging modality. MRI is the imaging modality of choice for musculoskeletal tuberculosis. CT can be an alternative tool when MR is not available and for guided interventions. Multi-modality imaging helps in accurate diagnosis with the help of clinico-laboratory correlation and aids the treating physician/surgeon for the further management. MRI is a non-invasive, non-ionizing and sensitive imaging modality which has become a key diagnostic tool in the field of radiology. The aim of our study is to highlight the importance of MRI in the evaluation of the musculoskeletal tuberculosis by the radiologists to aid treating physician in the correct diagnosis and manage them for better outcome. Total of 50 cases were included in the study/At the end of our study we were to conclude that MRI helps in accurately identifying the pathologies of musculoskeletal tuberculosis and thereby helping in its effective management.
