Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is associated with a wide
range of disorders of mineral and bone metabolism.
Understanding the pathophysiology in mineral metabolism
and bone diseases is very important, as recent evidence
has suggested the concept of bone-vascular axis in CKD.
Our preliminary findings suggest that CKD-related T2
changes in the medial meniscus may precede alterations
in other cartilage regions.
