Abstract

The aim of this paper is to describe the new methods for analyzing knee articular cartilage degeneration. The most important aspects regarding research about magnetic resonance imaging, knee joint anatomy, stages of knee osteoarthritis, medical image segmentation and relaxation times calculation. This paper proposes new methods for relaxation times calculation and medical image segmentation. The experimental part describes the most important aspect regarding analysing of articular cartilage relaxation times changing. This part contains experimental results, which show the codependence between relaxation times and organic structure. These experimental results and proposed methods can be helpful for early osteoarthritis diagnostics.
