The article discusses chondral lesions on the hip and knee joints. The articular pathology of chondral lesions for the hip and knee joints is done through magnetic resonance imaging as it is noninvasive but delayed gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging and other methods are being developed. Also being developed are surgical resurfacing methods for chondral lesions as alternatives to magnetic resonance imaging.
