The accuracy of T1-, proton-density-, and T2-weighted magnetic resonance (MR) imaging sequences and gadolinium-enhanced MR arthrography in evaluation of the triangular fibro-cartilage complex (TFCC) and the scapholunate (SL) and lunotriquetral (LT) ligaments was studied in 15 patients with chronic wrist pain. Arthrography and arthroscopy were used as(More)
Spontaneous osteonecrosis about the knee typically is a disease of the elderly characterized by an acute onset of pain. The exact cause of this condition has long been debated, although a causative relationship between meniscal tears and spontaneous osteonecrosis about the knee has been postulated. Seven patients with knee pain, meniscal tears, and(More)
OBJECTIVE Synovial proliferation is difficult to detect on MR images when joint effusions are present. The objective of this study was to assess the efficacy of MR changes in intracapsular fat pads (prefemoral, quadriceps, Hoffa's) as a sign of synovial proliferation in patients with knee effusions. MATERIALS AND METHODS MR images were obtained in 70(More)
To provide further understanding of the magnetic resonance (MR) signal intensities in the triangular fibrocartilage (TFC) and interosseous ligaments of the wrist, the authors performed MR imaging with gross pathologic and histologic analysis in 10 cadaveric wrists. Spin-echo T1- and T2-weighted coronal images were obtained, and 3-mm coronal sections of the(More)
Until recently magnetic resonance imaging of the musculoskeletal system tended to be confined to the larger joints, such as the knee and shoulder. Advances in magnetic resonance technology, especially in the area of improved software and development of surface coils, have made feasible the imaging of smaller joints, such as the wrist.

Insufficiency fractures of the sacrum are a commonly recognized form of stress fracture typically occurring in elderly patients. As such patients usually present with low back pain, MR imaging is often performed initially as a means of evaluation. We present 5 patients with sacral insufficiency fractures imaged with MR. Metastatic disease was a leading(More)
 Objective. To evaluate the diagnostic value of the MR imaging syndrome before and after performance of provocative exercises in patients with dynamic carpal tunnel syndrome. Design. Fat-suppressed proton-density and T2-weighted spin-echo images of the wrist were obtained prior to and after provocative, standardized exercises. Images were interpreted in(More)
