In daily patient care imaging speed and high resolution are key elements that are in direct conflict.
In this issue Professor Marc-André Weber et al. (University Hospital Heidelberg, Germany) present a case of cartilaginous exostosis (osteochondroma) that shows how combining 3T MRI and dedicated high-density coils provides an irreplaceable tool for the fast and accurate evaluation of malignant and benign aspects and helps to raise arguments against a parosteal osteosarcoma or a low-grade chondrosarcoma as differential diagnoses.
