Osteoarthritis (OA) is a disease of articular cartilage degeneration. Early detection of changes in cartilage would be essential for preventing the progression of disease and for monitoring therapy in OA. The T/sub 1/spl rho// relaxation parameter describes the spin-lattice relaxation in the rotating frame and has been considered as a promising tool to detect the loss of proteoglycan (PG), which is an early precursor of OA. The goal of this study was to develop a T/sub 1/spl rho//-weighted… CONTINUE READING
