Correlation of semiquantitative vs quantitative MRI meniscus measures in osteoarthritic knees: results from the Osteoarthritis Initiative

Abstract

Meniscus damage is associated with meniscus extrusion and with an increased risk of incident knee osteoarthritis [1–3]. Meniscus extrusion is associated with fast structural progression of knee osteoarthritis, potentially because of a peripheral shift of the meniscus and a greater exposure of tibial cartilage, causing less mechanical protection by the… (More)
