Abstract

OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this article is to provide a practice-focused review of accelerating musculoskeletal MRI with the use of widely accessible techniques and to assess the effects of such acceleration on the value of musculoskeletal MRI. CONCLUSION. Echo-train compaction with fast radiofrequency pulses, high gradient performance modes, and high receiver bandwidth, as well as basic phase undersampling techniques, affords at least twofold acceleration of musculoskeletal MRI examinations while retaining image quality, comprehensiveness, and diagnostic performance. Optimized efficiency is a cornerstone for adding value to musculoskeletal MRI.
