Charge as Knee WO
What would Joe do? (WWJD)

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 prior study has been done, place map where it was previously. If no instruction/1st study scan - If you see a defect in the meniscus on the COR view, place Sag map though there. Otherwise place in area where the meniscus appears thickest.
