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.
