In this work, we demonstrate a novel automated MRI scan plane prescription workflow by making use of the pre-scan calibrations scans to generate prescription planes for knee MRI planning. Using large-FOV, low-resolution 3D calibration data, we find the meniscus plane with very-high accuracy (angle error = 0.76, distance error = 0.07 mm). The approach obviates the need to acquire any localizer images with potential benefits: (1) avoiding subsequent retakes for correct planning of plane prescription; (2) reducing total scan time; and (3) easing the MRI scanning experience for both patient and technologist by enabling single push scan.
