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 that a bilateral coil-array setup can image both knees simultaneously in similar scan times as conventional unilateral knee scans with comparable image quality and quantitative accuracy. This has the potential to improve the value of MRI knee evaluations.
