In brief: Yes/No

If its acute tendonitis you might see it on MRI as inflammation of the ligament.
If its not acute it may show up as chronic tearing in the areas.

In brief: Yes.

This problem can also be picked up by ultrasound.
However, you may not even need to do the test if your history and exam is suggestive of this diagnosis.
