Metal implants are now very common in modern joint and spine surgeries. However, conventional MR images are significantly compromised by implant-induced magnetic susceptibility artifacts. A novel metal artifacts reduction technique, termed MAVRIC SL was proposed. The purpose of this study is to evaluate its clinical feasibility and diagnostic value in patients after anterior cervical surgery compared with routine 2D FSE sequence at 3T. As a result, although the image quality of MAVRIC SL is limited at 3T, it can still provide important additional diagnostic information through substantially reduced metal artifacts.
