Quantitative MR Imaging: Technical Aspects

Yang Xia

Quantitative MRI in musculoskeletal tissues is challenging. Our technical ability to accurately measure and reliably interpret MRI parameters in musculoskeletal tissues can be influenced by the complexity of our specimens (human patient, animals, ex vivo specimen), instrumentation, experimental details, and data-analysis. This talk examines a number of these issues and their impact on the robustness of quantitative MRI, using the examples mainly from articular cartilage and its degradation process that leads to osteoarthritis. A brief comparison between articular cartilage and other musculoskeletal tissues (tendon, nasal cartilage, meniscus, and bone) will also be given.
