Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

The purpose of this article is to provide a practical review of the spectrum of MRI findings in inflammatory muscle diseases and their noninflammatory mimics.

CONCLUSION:

MRI is a highly sensitive tool for the diagnosis of muscle diseases. Although it has low specificity, awareness of the potential imaging findings in the various, sometimes rare, muscular disorders is helpful for accurate diagnosis.
