Osteoarthritis (OA) is one of the most common forms of arthritis affecting millions of people around the world. It is believed that the initiation of OA is predominantly due to the loss of proteoglycans from the cartilage. Glycosaminoglycan (GAG) are side chains attached to protein core of Proteoglycans. Multiple studies have reported Chemical Exchange Saturation Transfer (CEST) imaging using Glycosaminoglycan (GAG) as the endogenous agent at 7T in the Knee. In the current work we have looked at GAGCEST imaging of Knee cartilage at 7T in controls and performed a reproducibility study.
