Varus and valgus alignment are associated with the presence and progression of knee osteoarthritis. We assessed the feasibility of rapidly assessing leg alignment with a non-weight bearing MRI in under a minute. Good agreement was observed between alignment measurements from MRI and weight-bearing radiographs. This technique offers a sub-one-minute scan that can be incorporated into routine MRI knee scans to add important knee alignment information and potentially removes the need for additional scanning.
