the new applications of MRI in joint imaging.
Educational Objectives: Upon completion of this session, participants should be able to:
with other advanced imaging modalities; Explain the role of interventional
MRI in the musculoskeletal system; Explain the role of high field MRI
in the musculoskeletal system; Describe the technical issues
related to high-resolution joint imaging; Evaluate options for open MRI
scanners for musculoskeletal imaging.
