Abstract

The purpose was to evaluate the feasibility of quantitative MRI T2 mapping based on the quantitative MRI (QRAPMASTER) sequence for the quantitative assessment of knee cartilage. The T2 values from the phantom study showed excellent correlation between the two techniques (r2 = 0.998). The cartilage T2 values exhibited strong correlations (r2 = 0.867–0.982). Quantitative MRI (qMRI) T2 mapping can be used as an alternative to multi-echo T2 mapping, with relatively short scan time.
