Abstract

Prompt diagnosis and treatment are essential in preventing the complications of musculoskeletal infection. In this context, imaging is often used to confirm clinically suspected diagnoses, define the extent of infection, and ensure appropriate management. Because of its superior soft-tissue contrast resolution, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the modality of choice for evaluating musculoskeletal infections. This article describes the MRI features along the full spectrum of musculoskeletal infections and provides several illustrative case examples.
