Figure 3 (A-C): TFC and scapholunate ligament tears in a 35 year old man. Coronal PD (A) and MEDIC (B) images show a central TFC tear (bold arrow) with fluid in distal radioulnar joint, but the scapholunate ligament appears intact (arrow). However, MR arthrogram (C) clearly depicts a scapholunate ligament tear with contrast extending into the midcarpal joint through the gap between scaphoid and lunate. The frayed, coapted ends of the torn scapholunate ligament have now separated; lunatotriquetral ligament is intact
