Do MRI scans detect scar tissue?


Recently told by a surgeon that MRI scans don't detect scar tissue. I read, however, that they do, it's just quite difficult to see. Does anyone know a) which is correct and b) a good, scientific site to find out more please.

We are seeing if the NHS will provide one for my son's knee, if not, we'll go private. The only reason we saw the surgeon was part of the long process of trying to get the scan on the NHS. He is certainly not cutting into my son's leg!

Many thanks.
