Multi-Slice Acquisition to Accelerate T2 Relaxation Time Imaging of Cartilage

The PI of this project was:

This project was funded by: Radiology RD

The term of this project was: March 2018 to August 2018

The number of subjects scanned during this project was: 15

This study will evaluate multi-slice acquisition for accelerating T2 relaxation time imaging of the articular cartilage of the knee joint. Multi-slice and conventional T2 mapping sequences will be obtained in the knees of 10 healthy asymptomatic volunteers and 5 subjects with knee osteoarthritis. T2 relaxation time measurements of articular cartilage will be compared for the accelerated and conventional sequences.
