PMID:  22542378     Owner:  NLM     Status:  In-Data-Review    
PURPOSE: To explore the findings of diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) and the diffusion characteristics on patellar cartilage in healthy adults.
MATERIALS AND METHODS: Thirty healthy subjects were studied on SIEMENS 3.0-T Trio Tim magnetic resonance (MR) scanner. The apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values of the patellar cartilage were measured in different areas.
RESULTS: The patellar cartilage demonstrated homogeneously high signal intensity on the images of DWI and maps of ADC. The ADC values displayed a spatial dependency, approximately (1.17±0.31)×10(-3) mm(2)/s of the entire cartilage.
CONCLUSIONS: Diffusion-weighted MR imaging may display articular cartilage structure. There is a consistent pattern of spatial variation of the ADC values.
