Abstract

OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this article is to provide a practice-focused review of the clinical application of advanced acceleration techniques for rapid musculoskeletal MRI examinations. CONCLUSION. Parallel imaging, simultaneous multislice acquisition, compressed sensing-based sampling, and synthetic MRI techniques provide unprecedented opportunities for rapid musculoskeletal MRI examinations. For 2D and 3D fast spin-echo and turbo spin-echo pulse sequences, acceleration factors between 3 and 8 can be realized in clinical practice, amounting to a time savings of 66-85% when compared with unaccelerated acquisitions.
