I sprained my ankle. X-ray shows no broken bones. Heard it pop, bruises and pain. Are there ways to make sure that there are no torn ligaments?

In brief: Magnetism........

The MRI can be used to confirm the suspicion of any torn ligaments after suffering from an ankle injury.
However, the fact that a ligament is shown to be torn may not necessarily change the manner in which the ankle sprain it treated.
