Osteoarthritis (OA) is commonly a bilateral disease. While long scan time and costs have precluded separate scanning of both knees in clinical MRI, there is evidence that bilateral examinations are beneficial for evaluation of OA changes, especially for longitudinal studies. In this study, we demonstrate the feasibility of simultaneously imaging both knees with similar scan time, SNR, and quantitative accuracy compared to single knee acquisitions.
