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.
