Over the past decade, MR imaging has become one of the most valuable imaging tools for evaluation of musculoskeletal pathology. This is due to its high sensitivity to the vast majority of acute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries and the starting anatomic clarity provided. The latter feature allows definition of characteristic injury patterns, which is the key to most diagnoses and also usually allows accurate grading of the severity of injuries. Careful attention to imaging technique and the specific architectural patterns of musculotendinous disruption by the imaging specialist will result in accurate diagnoses for the patient and referring physician.
