Abstract

The role of MR imaging as a noninvasive technique in the detection and evaluation of musculoskeletal diseases is unquestionable. Most of the studies reported in the literature are based on high-field MR imaging. Initial studies performed with low-field-strength have reported unsatisfactory results in the assessment of the musculoskeletal system. Recent improvements, however, have generated a renewed interest in low-field-strength MR imaging. This article presents the principal applications and results published in the literature.
