OBJECTIVE This study assessed the three-dimensional accuracy of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for measuring articular surface topographies and cartilage thicknesses of human cadaveric knee joints, by comparison with the calibrated stereophotogrammetric (SPG) method. METHODS Six fresh frozen cadaveric knees and the knees of four volunteers were imaged(More)
