MRI of the musculoskeletal system.

Abstract

MRI is rapidly altering the presurgical evaluation for many forms of musculoskeletal pathology, and the indications for MRI will undoubtedly continue to grow. Because of the complexity of this modality and the ability to totally "miss" pathology by the inappropriate choice of imaging plane or pulse sequence, cooperation between the orthopedic surgeon and the radiologist is essential. A close working relationship is required for maximum diagnostic information to be obtained with each examination and for optimal patient care.
