[This] is a text that contains 315 pediatric and adolescent musculoskeletal MRI cases
presented within the context of 102 unknowns... Cases are presented as “unknowns” in an effort to provide a dynamic learning process. The reader is given a brief history and initial images. A description of findings with appropriate annotated images and supplementary images follows.The diagnosis is then revealed and a discussion ensues.
