Does cartilage volume measurement or radiographic osteoarthritis at baseline independently predict ten-year cartilage volume loss?


BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to examine whether cartilage volume as measured by MRI and radiographic osteoarthritis (OA) at baseline predict cartilage volume loss over ten years independent of each other and other structural co-pathologies. METHODS 219 participants [mean-age 45(26-61); 57 % female] were studied at baseline and ten years… (More)
