Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference paperChapterpeer-review


Many advances have been made in knee imaging, particularly in the field of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Today, MRI of the knee is the most frequently requested MR examination of the musculoskeletal system. It is common practice to acquire an MRI after clinical examination and radiographs in the workup of suspected knee derangement. Frequently, it is the definitive examination, providing critical information regarding the decision to treat conservatively or surgically. These factors have led to the wide acceptance by the clinical community of MR knee studies as a noninvasive replacement for diagnostic arthroscopy. In this chapter, the spectrum of imaging modalities that are commonly used in the knee will be described first. Second, the most common knee disorders will be discussed, emphasizing the role of MRI.
