The anatomy of the wrist and hand is complex and contains numerous small structures. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is often an ideal imaging modality in the assessment of various traumatic and pathologic conditions of this region, and it is frequently performed after initial radiographs. In this manuscript we describe the normal anatomy, imaging techniques, and MRI findings of various traumatic and pathologic conditions of the wrist and hand including occult fractures, osteonecrosis, ligamentous and tendon injuries, and entrapment neuropathies.
