In summary, articular cartilage is relatively acellular. The viscoelastic biomaterial properties of the tissue are a function of three main components—water, type II collagen, and aggrecan—that form a fiber-reinforced composite extracellular matrix. This matrix demonstrates a high level of structural organization with respect to depth from the articular surface, as well as spatial diversity with respect to location in the joint and the prevailing biomechanical forces applied to the tissue. Because the anisotropic arrangement of the type II collagen fibrils provides an efficient pathway for T2 relaxation of interstitial water, T2-weighted MR images are highly sensitive to structural properties of cartilage.

Because the anisotropic arrangement of the type II collagen fibrils provides an efficient pathway for T2 relaxation of interstitial water, T2-weighted MR images are highly sensitive to structural properties of cartilage. Detection of early cartilage injury through identification of changes in cartilage T2-weighted signal intensity is discussed in Chapter 3.
