The material presented here demonstrates a validated, automated knee articular cartilage segmentation platform that can create 3D Thickness maps of knee articular cartilage. These thickness maps delineate the location and size of articular cartilage defects, as well as the integrity of the surrounding cartilage, and provide an accurate guide for pre operative evaluation and facilitate physician - patient interactions.
