Synthetic MRI was already validated in some cerebral applications. We adapted it to evaluate the spine and showed that it produces, in general, good image quality and diagnostic confidence. Efforts will still have to be made to increase image quality in the dorso-lumbar spine. However, the non-negligible time saving and the ability to obtain quantitative measurements as well as to generate several contrasts with a single acquisition should secure an interesting and useful future for synthetic MRI in clinical routine.
