Cartilage Imaging of the Hand and Wrist Using 3-T MRI

Seminars in Musculoskeletal Radiology, 06/08/2012

This review focuses on cartilage imaging of the hand and wrist with 3–T MRI and addresses these four topics: (1) the advantages of 3–T versus 1.5– and 1–T MRI, (2) dedicated sequence protocols at 3 T including novel three–dimensional sequences, (3) imaging findings in common cases of overuse or sports injury, and (4) functional cartilage imaging techniques of the hand and wrist, for instance, delayed gadolinium–enhanced MRI of the cartilage.
