Correlation time τc is a parameter that describes the relaxation properties of soft tissues. In this study, articular cartilage from human cadaver patellae was studied using MR imaging and biomechanical testing and modeling. The statistical analysis revealed an association between the permeability, as revealed by mechanical modeling, and the correlation time measured for articular cartilage.
