Based on MRI of the knee joint, it is demonstrated, how the use of a specific multi-contrast keyhole imaging technique that uses high- and low-frequency components of the k-space for different contrast weightings separately, can produce substantial time savings up to 50% in native diagnostic MRI-knee protocol maintaining similar subjective contrast quality of individual sequences.
