In recent decades, the clinical applications for which magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is routinely used have expanded exponentially. MR imaging protocols have become increasingly complex, adversely affecting image acquisition and interpretation times. The MR imaging workflow has become a prime target for process improvement initiatives. There has been growing interest in the cultivation of abbreviated MR imaging protocols that evaluate specific clinical questions while reducing cost and increasing access. The overarching goal is to streamline the MR imaging workflow and reduce the time needed to obtain and report examinations by eliminating duplicative or unnecessary sequences without sacrificing diagnostic accuracy.
