BACKGROUND The relation between knee meniscal structural damage and cartilage degradation is plausible but not yet clearly proven. OBJECTIVES To quantitate the cartilage volume changes in knee osteoarthritis using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and determine whether meniscal alteration predicts cartilage volume loss over time. METHODS 32 patients(More)
Over 100 papers describing and utilizing the Stanford Health Assessment Questionnaire (HAQ) have been published since 1980. A brief overview of the HAQ is presented along with a guide to the accumulated literature. The topics covered include: studies using the disability, pain, economic, and drug side effect dimensions of the HAQ; reliability and validity(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate in patients with knee osteoarthritis (OA) the size changes in bone oedema and cysts over 24 months, and to contrast these changes with cartilage volume loss using quantitative magnetic resonance imaging. METHODS 107 patients with knee OA, selected from a large trial evaluating the effect of a bisphosphonate, were analysed by magnetic(More)
Osteoarthritis affects the whole joint structure with progressive changes in cartilage, menisci, ligaments and subchondral bone, and synovial inflammation. Biomarkers are being developed to quantify joint remodelling and disease progression. This article was prepared following a working meeting of the European Society for Clinical and Economic Aspects of(More)
OBJECTIVE Bisphosphonates have slowed the progression of osteoarthritis (OA) in animal models and have decreased pain in states of high bone turnover. The Knee OA Structural Arthritis (KOSTAR) study, which is the largest study to date investigating a potential structure-modifying OA drug, tested the efficacy of risedronate in providing symptom relief and(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the change in osteoarthritic (OA) knee cartilage volume over a two-year period with the use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and to correlate the MRI changes with radiologic changes. METHODS Thirty-two patients with symptomatic knee OA underwent MRI of the knee at baseline and at 6, 12, 18, and 24 months. Loss of cartilage volumes(More)
Knee osteoarthritis is associated with structural changes in the joint. Despite its many drawbacks, radiography is the current standard for evaluating joint structure in trials of potential disease-modifying osteoarthritis drugs. MRI is a non-invasive alternative that provides comprehensive imaging of the whole joint. Frequently used MRI measurements in(More)
OBJECTIVE Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a three-dimensional imaging technique with unparalleled ability to evaluate articular cartilage. This report reviews the current status of morphological assessment of cartilage with quantitative MRI (qMRI), and its relevance for identifying disease status, and monitoring progression and treatment response in(More)
