Abstract

To describe practical solutions to the unique technical challenges of musculoskeletal magnetic resonance imaging, including off-isocenter imaging, artifacts from motion and metal prostheses, small field-of-view imaging, and non-conventional scan angles and slice positioning. Unique challenges of musculoskeletal magnetic resonance imaging require a collaborative approach involving radiologists, physicists, and technologists utilizing optimized magnetic resonance protocols, specialized coils, and unique patient positioning, in order to reliably diagnose critical musculoskeletal MR image findings.
