In Osteoarthritis (OA) degeneration of articular cartilage, are accompanied by changes in subchondral and trabecular bone. In this study we analyzed bone structure, cartilage degeneration and bone remodeling, quantified using simultaneous PET/MRI system in fourteen subjects with radiographic or symptomatic OA. The aim of this study was to evaluate these imaging biomarkers in association with patient reported outcomes for evaluating this technique as a tool for assessing OA. Our results showed associations between Standardized Uptake Values (SUV) and both level of pain measured by KOOS and cartilage degeneration measured using T and T2 relaxation times.
