OBJECTIVES To establish an ultrasonographic (US) grading for semiquantitative evaluation of the femoral condylar cartilage of knee osteoarthritis (OA), in vivo, and compare the in vivo US grading with the in vitro US and histologic gradings. DESIGN Ninety-five patients going to receive total knee arthroplasty because of OA of the knee were recruited. US examination was performed in vivo in the day before operation using a grading system including parameters of margin sharpness, clarity and… CONTINUE READING
