Synthetic MRI has been shown to be of comparable performance to conventional MRI in the assessment of intracranial abnormalities. This study compares synthetic MRI with conventional T2 mapping for quantitative assessment of cartilage T2 relaxation times. T2 values acquired via synthetic MRI are highly correlated with but not equivalent to conventional T2 mapping. Synthetic MRI could be a potential alternative in the quantitative assessment of chondral abnormalities, without the need for prolonged scan times and providing the benefit of dynamic tissue contrasts from a single acquisition.
