Synovial tissue that lines joint cavities, bursae, and tendinous sheaths is generally too thin to be shown on MRI. However, as synovial tissue thickens because of diverse abnormal conditions, it may become visible on MRI. Signal intensity is a feature of paramount importance in the MRI assessment of these synovial lesions.
