OBJECTIVE We describe optical coherence tomography (OCT), a high resolution micron scale imaging technology, for assessment of osteoarthritic articular cartilage microstructure. OCT is analogous to ultrasound, measuring the intensity of backreflected infrared light rather than acoustical waves. METHODS OCT imaging was performed on over 100 sites on 20 normal and osteoarthritic cartilage specimens in vitro. RESULTS Microstructures that were identified included fibrillations, fibrosis… CONTINUE READING
