This human subject study presents preliminary results demonstrating the great potential of ultra-high resolution (0.14mm) UTE imaging to simultaneously visualize daily movement active tissues in the knee joint, including cartilages, menisci, ligaments, tendons, and even the chondro-osseous junctions. Non-invasive observation of these functional tissues are critical to understanding mechanisms of the onset and progression of osteoarthritis (OA).
