Knee MRI results with technique discrepancy

Patient : June 10, 2015 I had an MRI of my left knee on a 1.5 Tesla GE Signa Excite HDxt unit. Technique section of MRI report indicates FSE (fast spin echo) was used for all sagittal, coronal, and axial images (exception coronal TI). When I viewed the actual images, I noticed the axial T2 is the only image that indicates FSE (AX T2 FSE FS). The other images say - Sag T2 FS, Sag PD FS, and Cor PD FS). Does the absence of any reference to FSE mean it was not used? // Thank You.
