Quantitative cartilage morphometry on MR images is
a valuable tool to reveal changes of cartilage in pathological knees. In this
study, we used an automated cartilage segmentation software to quantifying the
cartilage loss in osteoarthritis patients, meniscus tears patients and compared
with the control healthy subjects. The aim of this
study was to examine whether there is dominant cartilage which has the most
loss in cartilage volume in osteoarthritis and meniscus tears. The outcome is that
using the precise quantification of cartilage change in percentage is valuable
to specify the most venerable cartilage in pathological knees.
