We tried to evaluat OA by using the T2 mapping and the texture characteristics. Thirty-seven patients and sixteen healthy volunteers were recruited in this study. The results showed that the T2 value is higher in patients than in controls and some texture characteristics in two groups are different. It can be concluded that texture analysis combined with T2 maping are an useful tool for diagnosis of OA patients.
