Advanced Imaging of Cartilage-Bone Interactions
Weekday Course

ORGANIZERS: Jung-Ah Choi, Riccardo Lattanzi, Miika Nieminen, Jan Fritz, Edwin Oei

Tuesday, 14 May 2019
  15:45 - 17:45 Moderators:  Marianne Black

Skill Level: Intermediate to Advanced

Session Number: TU-08

Changes occur to both the deep cartilage and subchondral bone in musculoskeletal diseases such as osteoarthritis, and interactions between these adjacent tissues are important. Advanced MRI techniques are required to obtain signal from these regions of tissue due to their short T2 relaxation times. This session explores the biology of interactions at the cartilage-bone interface, the advanced MRI techniques required to study this region, clinical studies of this interaction, and the use of PET/MR systems to study metabolic changes.

Target Audience
Trainees, researchers, and clinicians with an interest in changes at the bone-cartilage interface in musculoskeletal disease such as osteoarthritis.

Educational Objectives
As a result of attending this course, participants should be able to:
- Describe the biologic interactions at the cartilage-bone interface;
- List and summarize MRI techniques used to image the cartilage-bone interface;
- Describe how the cartilage-bone interface has been studied clinically; and
- Explain how PET/MR can be used to study metabolic changes at the cartilage-bone interface.
