Several studies have reported different findings on the correlations of the CW-T1ρ relaxation time in articular cartilage with its different properties. Most studies agree on the sensitivity of CW-T1ρ to cartilage proteoglycans, although reports specifically against this also exist. Furthermore, CW-T1ρ has been connected to the collagen network properties and also correlated with T2 relaxation time. Orientation dependence of CW-T1ρ has been reported, as well as its dependence on the spin-locking amplitude. This study aims to combine all of these aspects in a single study.
