OBJECTIVE To examine magnetic resonance imaging-derived T2 relaxation times in the weight-bearing cartilage of the distal femur in healthy children and in children with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA). METHODS T2 relaxation time maps were created for 39 girls (ages 4.9-10.9 years), 21 of whom were considered healthy and 18 of whom had JRA. The spatial… CONTINUE READING
