Abstract

Magnetic resonance imaging methods are described for measurement of disease activity in knee in rheumatoid arthritis patients. Measurements of cartilage thickness, joint effusion volume, and pannus volume have been made. The latter measurement relies on synthetic fractional enhancement images of the response to gadopentetate dimeglumine.
