Can T2 relaxation values and color maps be used to detect chondral damage utilizing subchondral bone marrow edema as a marker?

Abstract

This study aimed to investigate whether a commercially available time-efficient T2 mapping sequence will demonstrate findings of articular cartilage degeneration based on T2 relaxation values (RV) and color maps, using subchondral bone marrow edema (BME) as a marker for chondral damage. The patient group consisted of 88 subjects who underwent knee magnetic… (More)
