The calcifications are often very similar in size and shape. MRI shows diffuse synovial abnormality with intermediate signal on T1-weighting. 22,134–138 Areas of calcification remain low signal on all MRI pulse sequences; however, small calcifications are often difficult or impossible to detect on MRI compared with CT or radiographs (Fig. 28). 8,22,139–143 Although an extensive discussion of these lesions individually is beyond the scope of this chapter, these lesions as a group often show characteristic MRI findings that suggest the diagnosis.
