PURPOSE Altered kinematics following ACL-reconstruction may be a cause of post-traumatic osteoarthritis. T(1ρ) MRI is a technique that detects early cartilage matrix degeneration. Our study aimed to evaluate kinematics following ACL-reconstruction, cartilage health (using T(1ρ) MRI), and assess whether altered kinematics following ACL-reconstruction are associated with early cartilage degeneration. METHODS Eleven patients (average age: 33 ± 9 years) underwent 3T MRI 18 ± 5 months following… CONTINUE READING
