Quantitative MR parameters(such as T2-relaxation time) are sensitive to biochemical changes in the cartilage. The objective of the study was to evaluate the performance of different statistics parameters from T2 values of femur cartilage and normalized T2 map (Z-score T2 map) values for differentiating healthy vs OA patients as well as Early-OA (Grade-I and Grade-II), vs Risk-OA (Grade-III) patients. Multiple Statistic parameter from T2 map provided high accuracy in differentiation between healthy vs OA cartilage, while one of the static parameter of Z-score T2 map provided high accuracy in differentiation between early-OA vs Risk-OA.
