New recommendations will help provide more reliable, reproducible results for MRI-based measurements of cartilage degeneration in the knee, helping to slow down disease and prevent progression to irreversible osteoarthritis, according to a special report published in the journal Radiology

Knee cartilage compartments with anatomic labels implemented in lateral (left side), central (middle), and medial (right side) MRI obtained with an intermediate weighted fat-saturated fast-spin-echo sequence (top row) and a spin-lattice relaxation time constant in rotating frame (T1r) magnetization-prepared angle-modulated partitioned k-space spoiled gradient echo snapshots sequence (bottom row, T1r maps). Study was performed without administration of intravenous gadolinium-based contrast material. The lateral femur (LF)/medial femur (MF) and lateral tibia (LT)/medial tibia (MT) can be further divided into subcompartments on the basis of meniscus anatomy according to Eckstein et al. P = patella, T = trochlea.  Chalian et al, Radiology 2021 301; 7 ©RSNA 2021

Figure shows coarse attention maps generated using GradCAM for correctly classified high-grade glioma (HGG), low-grade glioma (LGG), brain metastases (METS), meningioma (MEN), acoustic neuroma (AN), and pituitary adenoma (PA). For each pair, the postcontrast T1-weighted scan, and the GradCAM attention map (overlaid on scan) have been shown. In GradCAM maps, warmer and colder colors represent high and low contribution of pixels toward a correct prediction, respectively. Image courtesy of the Radiological Society of North America
