Zero Echo Time (ZTE) MRI yields positive contrast for bone visualization using MRI. The present study highlights cases in which ZTE provides additional diagnostic information in the context of orthopedic trauma. The presented cases are ones in which MRI was deemed necessary for the evaluation of ligament, tendon, or nerve integrity and ZTE was added to aid in the assessment of fractures. In conjunction with our prior work, this study demonstrates that ZTE MRI provides additional diagnostic information in musculoskeletal MRI, specifically in the context of joint trauma.
