0.3 and 1.5 Tesla Mri

Sometimes, if my daily agenda allows to spread my curiosity (time is never enough!), I make a comparison between 0.3 and 1.5 Tesla Mri imaging studying the same patient.

These are the pictures of a sprained medial collateral ligament of a professional football player, quite similar to what is shown in my recent post medial collateral ligament tear.

I always complete my study with a dynamic ultrasound exam; in this patient the presence of a calcification is noted, not visible on Mri scans.
