Clinical Study of Novel Diagnostic Techniques for Knee Osteoarthritis
Comparison Between Intra-articular Ultrasound Imaging, Non-invasive Ultrasound Imaging, Quantitative MRI Imaging, Contrast-enhanced CT Imaging and Arthroscopy for Diagnostics of Knee Osteoarthritis
The purpose of this study is to clarify the potential of intra-articular ultrasound imaging, non-invasive ultrasound imaging, quantitative MRI imaging, contrast-enhanced CT imaging and arthroscopy for diagnostics of knee osteoarthritis. All methods will be cross-correlated and compared with the arthroscopic findings.
