Abstract

MR imaging is the best noninvasive method for the evaluation of articular cartilage. Recent studies have clarified the MR appearance of normal articular cartilage and proven that MR imaging can detect chondral lesions with high accuracy. Quantitative imaging holds promise for the accurate determination of cartilage volumes and thickness measurements, as well as the ability to detect early chondral degeneration and biochemical changes before gross morphologic changes occur.
