This study aims to evaluate and compare extremity-MRi with specialized radiography by measuring articular cartilage height in patients with knee osteoarthritis. A prospective study, including sixty patients. Measurements on MRi images, Rosenberg view, and coronal stress radiographs were performed. MRI was compared to specialized radiography. Measurements in the medial compartment showed negligible/weak correlation between MRi and Rosenber/varus stress. In the lateral compartment, MRi and the Rosenberg/valgus stress view were strongly correlated. We conclude that MRi cannot replace radiographs for the measurement of articular cartilage thickness. MRi should, however, be reserved for more unusual cases of atypical clinical findings.
