Quantitation of articular cartilage by magnetic resonance imaging and three-dimensional reconstruction has been validated and is likely to be a useful outcome measure in clinical trials of arthritis. The cost of magnetic resonance imaging is largely dependent on scanning time. The aim of this study was to compare a fast spoiled gradient-echo sequence magnetic resonance imaging scanning protocol, which takes 5 minutes and 44 seconds, with the standard, previously validated spoiled gradient-echo… CONTINUE READING
