PURPOSE To compare 1.5- and 3.0-T magnetic resonance (MR) images of porcine knee specimens containing artificial cartilage lesions in terms of accuracy of lesion depiction, image quality, and signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). MATERIALS AND METHODS This Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act-compliant study had institutional review board approval, and informed consent was obtained from the human volunteers. Two fat-saturated cartilage MR imaging sequences (an intermediate-weighted fast… CONTINUE READING
