Chronic knee injuries are especially common in jumping athletes, and in particular high-level basketball players. In this work, we developed an advanced quantitative MRI protocol to longitudinally study early degenerative changes in high-level basketball players across multiple sites. Studying these changes, between high and low impact athletes, within one season as well as over three seasons for a cumulative effect, will help provide better insight into these changes. In developing this protocol for a multi-center study, we use a common phantom to assess biases in quantitative measurements across study scanners.
