ABSTRACT
The article focuses on various technique for managing articular cartilage defects of the knee. It discloses the poor intrinsic capacity of articular cartilage; thus traumatic damage and degeneration can led to functional impairment and morbidity. It mentions that microfracture and other bone marrow stimulation techniques are commonly used in the treatment of small symptomatic lesions. It also notes on the viability and advantage of mosaicplasty in addressing osteochondral lesions.

    Purpose: T2 mapping techniques use the relaxation constant as an indirect marker of cartilage structure, and the relaxation constant has also been shown to be a sensitive parameter for cartilage evaluation. As a possible additional robust biomarker, T2* relaxation time is a potential, clinically...
