Abstract
Magnetization Contrast Imaging (MTC) has shown its benefits in neuroradiology, however it also has its potential in musculoskeletal-MRI of cartilage repair tissue. The purpose of this initial study was to show the potential of MTC in the assessment of healthy articular cartilage as well as cartilage repair tissue after different cartilage repair procedures and compare it to widely used T2 mapping at 3 Tesla MRI. Furthermore as a visible zonal variation has been seen to add additional information in T2 relaxation evaluation of articular cartilage, within MTC deep and superficial cartilage aspects were assessed to elucidate a possible zonal difference.
