ABSTRACT
The article presents a research study that describes the basic knowledge of magnetic resonance imaging to help orthopaedic surgeons evaluate images accurately. It explicates several pulse sequences that are utilized in acquiring magnetic resonance images in the musculoskeletal system. It also provides systematic approaches to the analysis of the magnetic resonance studies.

    Background: Inappropriate MRI use has been targeted as a particular area of concern in orthopaedics, but it is unclear whether and to what extent its use is inappropriate in musculoskeletal oncology. Questions/Purposes: We therefore evaluated the incidence and cost of inappropriate prereferral...
