Seventy patients with clinically diagnosed athletic muscle injuries of varying severity were studied with MR imaging at 1.5 T. Twenty underwent follow-up MR studies. In all cases, SE T1-weighted and double-echo T2-weighted pulse sequences were used. These were supplemented by short T1 inversion recovery (STIR) sequence in 36 cases. Muscle injuries were more readily seen with STIR images than with SE T2-weighted images. In both initial assessment and follow-up of tears, the use of the STIR… CONTINUE READING
