Our study is a prospective longitudinal study conducted to find outcome of anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction in rabbit model. We evaluated degenerative changes of cartilage by UTE-T2* mapping. ACLR knees shows cartilage matrix degeneration at early stage of "ligamentization", though rabbit tibiofemoral cartilage is definitely thin.
