It is often difficult to definitively diagnose intraneural ganglion cysts with conventional MR imaging and to identify the origin of the cyst in a joint via what may often be a subtle connection. The ideal acquisition for imaging these cysts would be a 3D acquisition with isotropic spatial resolution that would achieve optimum reformatting in all areas within a reasonable scan time. It is the purpose of this study to demonstrate the clinical utility of 3D FSE-Cube in the evaluation of intraneural ganglion cysts and the important joint connection.
