PubMed Commons is an experimental system of commenting on PubMed abstracts, introduced in October 2013. Comments are displayed on the abstract page, but during the initial closed pilot, only registered users can read or post comments. Any researcher who is listed as an author of an article indexed by PubMed is entitled to participate in the pilot. If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

MRI reliability

James Hall   (2008-02-25 16:21)  none email

My daughter had an MRI that diagnosed her ACL as partially torn. It was the same ACL (hamstring graff) that was reconstructed a year earlier. She however had no pain and went the conservative route of treatment. She resumed activity(collegiate Basketball) about 4 weeks later and so far so good.She does wear a custom fit brace. After reading this article I am wandering about the reliability of the MRI.
