  • Conventional MRI outcome measures for cartilage in knee osteoarthritis (OA) clinical studies lack responsiveness and require time-consuming manual analysis.
  • Here we validate and clinically implement a semiautomatic surface-based approach termed 3D Cartilage Surface Mapping (3D-CaSM) which overcomes these issues.
  • Validation data demonstrate comparable bias, precision, repeatability and reproducibility to expert manual segmentation (current standard) but with >10 fold reduction in analysis time.
  • Clinical data indicate improved sensitivity to change in one observational and two interventional (exercise, knee joint distraction) studies.
