Brief Summary:

Purpose:Evaluate the feasibility of T2 cartilage mapping on MRI of the wrist and correlate with T2 mapping of knee cartilage.

Study protocol: Phase 1. 10 healthy volunteers, Phase 2. 10 volunteers with osteoarthritis of the wrist, Phase 3. 50 patients for studies for routine MR of the wrist.

MRI protocol: 3 T unit((Signa EXITE HDx),T1, T2 and T2 mapping sequences on axial and coronal orientation.

Group/Cohort
1
healthy young volunteers Inclusion: age 18-40, Exclusion: wrist trauma/surgery
2

patients with know osteoarthritis wrist changes according to pre-existing x-rays No age limits

exclusion: previous wrist surgery

3
Mixed group of 50 patients that perform routine MRI of the wrist for various indications



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. wrist bone cartilage thickness can be measured and stratification can be observed on T2 mapping with correlation to T2 mapping of the knee cartilage [ Time Frame: Within MRI completion (20 minutes) ]
