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.
