Magnetic resonance imaging of ankle tendon pathology: benefits of additional axial short-tau inversion recovery imaging to reduce magic angle effects


Our goals were to quantify the reduction of the magic angle effect using short-tau inversion recovery (STIR) imaging and to determine the value of adding an axial STIR sequence to the magnetic resonance imaging ankle protocol. Axial STIR sequences were used to measure normal tendon T1 and to estimate signal loss due to the inversion recovery preparation of… (More)
