Abstract

The exquisite tissue contrast and multiplanar capability of MRI make it the optimal imaging modality for diagnosing muscle injuries and other muscle disorders. These examinations can be performed with increasing speed because of improvements in gradient strength and software and coil design. Presently, some of the limitations of MRI of muscle relate to the lack of specificity of the findings. The advent of functional muscle MRI will increase the understanding of human muscle diseases, and increasingly place MRI in a central role for diagnosis and followup analysis.
