21 meniscal slices were evaluated using a surgical
reference standard and a panel of quantitative MRI
measures. We found that T2* values obtained with UTE
sequences can delineate normal from degenerated menisci,
thus complimenting conventional sequences. Torn menisci
demonstrate higher T2, UTE-T2*, T1rho, and UTE-T1rho
values compared with normal menisci.
