|Evaluation of meniscal lesions with high field (1.5 T) and new concept dedicated (0.31 T) MR systems: imaging findings and correlation with arthroscopy|
To compare sensitivity and specificity in the diagnosis of meniscal lesions when operating with a traditional high field MR scanner (1.5 T) and a new concept dedicated MR system (0.31 T).
Since the beginning of the ‘90s MR scanners dedicated to the study of the distal joints have been largely used especially in Traumatology. Thanks to technological progress and improvement of image quality these systems have been progressively introduced to reduce the waiting lists of the traditional high-field whole body MR scanners.
In this poster we compare the MR study of the knee using both systems in terms of patient's compliance, time of execution and diagnostic performance.
