Magnetic resonance imaging uses high-strength magnetic and electric fields to obtain multiplanar images with unrivaled soft tissue resolution.1,2 The image resolution and availability of various pulse sequences, each optimized for the evaluation of particular tissue attributes, make MRI the imaging modality of choice for numerous neurological, musculoskeletal, thoracic, and abdominal conditions. In addition, because of the absence of x-ray radiation, MRI is optimal for follow-up of chronic… CONTINUE READING
