Advanced Quantitative Imaging Biomarkers In OA

This presentation will review recent developments and the current state-of-the-art in quantitative magnetic resonance imaging biomarkers for OA. These include advanced and rapid relaxometry techniques (T1, T2, and T1-rho imaging), quantitative ultra-short echo time (UTE) imaging of joints, sodium MRI, dGEMRIC, and magnetization transfer techniques such as gagCEST. Each technique will be described at a high level, and the advantages and disadvantages of each discussed. The talk will also discuss the applicability of each technique at different MRI field strengths, and provide useful context to both OA researchers and clinicians.
