OBJECTIVE Previous studies have shown that meniscectomy results in an increase of local load transmission and may cause degeneration of the knee cartilage. Using 3D reconstructed T2 mapping, we examined the influence on the femoral cartilage under loading after medial meniscectomy. DESIGN Ten porcine knees were imaged using a pressure device and a 3.0-T magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system. Consecutive sagittal T2 maps were obtained in neutral alignment with and without compression, and… CONTINUE READING
