MR DeNovo Knee Research Protocol
- The angles and coverage should be similar to the routine knee.
- The study coordinator should tell you where the T2 Map needs to be placed.
- If a prior study has been done, place the Map where it was previously.
- If no instructions/1st study scan: If you see a defect in the meniscus on the COR view, place the SAG Map through that area. Otherwise, place the Map in the area where the meniscus appears the thickest.
