The article presents information on the techniques used for magnetic resonance imaging of articular cartilage in the athletic population. Articular cartilage is a viscoelastic material comprised of chondrocytes and embedded in an organized extracellular matrix and can be divided into four distinct zones. Magnetic resonance imaging is playing an increasing role in the noninvasive diagnosis of articular lesions.

    Noninvasive imagining of the knee meniscus without the use of the contrast agents is more difficult compared to articular cartilage. Despite the lower signal intensity of the knee meniscus, MRI is considered the best non-invasive imaging method. Thanks to the lower water content in the meniscus...
