Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is getting increasingly clinically important in the diagnosis and management of patients with peripheral and axial inflammatory joint diseases. A minimal knowledge of MRI acquisition techniques and the physics behind them increases the ability to have a meaningful discussion with the radiologists. This presentation will in an easily understandable way introduce participants to the basic physics of MRI. Furthermore, the most common MRI acquisition techniques, and their advantages and disadvantages, will be reviewed.
