Juvenile Osteochondritis Dissecans (OCD) is a disease of epiphyseal cartilage occurring subsequent to failure of cartilage canal blood vessels. Minimum intensity projections of MR susceptibility maps together with MR relaxometry can provide a noninvasive approach for a direct correlation between the quantitative assessment of cartilage matrix and the visualization of the canal degeneration at different time points.
