We investigate the effectiveness of a targeted rapid pediatric knee MRI exam with total exam time of about 10 minutes. We aim to enable same-day MRI access, accommodating the abbreviated protocol between other scheduled patients. The protocol is based on T2 Shuffling, a four-dimensional acquisition that permits volumetric reconstruction of images with variable T2-contrast. Preliminary data for ten subjects referred for the targeted knee MRI exam is presented. Mean time from registration to exam completion averaged 48.5 minutes, with one outlier of 269 minutes due to technologist error in documentation.
