Multiexponential T2 Analysis in Cartilage Degraded Using Different Enzymatic Protocols

Abstract

Introduction: Osteoarthritis (OA) is a highly prevalent and potentially debilitating disease involving degradation and loss of articular cartilage. MR is increasingly used as a sensitive diagnostic modality for OA, but suffers from lack of specificity for matrix components [1]. The initial phases of OA are characterized by disruption and loss of collagen… (More)
