There were approximately 1.25 million clinical knee magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans performed in the US annually. Most knee MRI protocols require approximately 30 minutes of scan time. However, there is interest in expedited imaging protocols, especially under the ISMRM Value Initiative. Through a study involving 35 patients and 5 readers, we have demonstrated the feasibility of (1) a single 5-minute DESS sequence and (2) a 5-minute DESS sequence paired with a 2-minute coronal PDFS sequence, as two potential methods for accurate, rapid, and comprehensive diagnostic whole-joint knee MRI.
