33) and intraspinal (Figs. 35) pathology and for evaluating abnormalities of the musculoskeletal system (Figs. 37) and the heart. Additionally, it is used to evaluate abdominal visceral problems (Fig. 38). MRA is also commonly used for vascular abnormalities (Fig. 39). Diagnostic Ultrasound Diagnostic ultrasound is a noninvasive imaging technique that uses sonic energy in the frequency range of 1 to 10 MHz (1,000,000 to 10,000,000 cps). This is well above the normal human ear response of 20 to 20,000 Hz.

B. Axial short T1 inversion recovery (STIR) image shows the herniation to be right of center (arrow). Note the compression of spinal cord. C. Sagittal STIR image shows a large herniated free fragment below L5-S1 (arrow). D. Axial T2-weighted image shows the large fragment on the right (arrow). C in utero (Fig. 41) or a pulsating aorta. This technique also permits rapid and efficient screening of a body region (Fig. 42). In the past decade, ultrasound is being used more frequently for evaluating ligaments and tendons, or cystic lesions (Fig.

The common display parameters used are the sagittal, coronal, and axial planes. Furthermore, MR imaging has the advantage of being able to highlight the different pathologic changes in different tissues through contrast manipulation. This is accomplished by altering the pattern of RF pulses in a study. The MR image reflects the strength or intensity of the magnetic resonance RF signal received from the sample. Signal intensity depends on several factors, such as hydrogen density and two magnetic relaxation times: T1 and T2.
