The success of targeted surgical and medical treatment leads to an increase in clinical interest in the early diagnosis of degenerative changes in articular cartilage. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is currently the most effective non-invasive method for visualizing and monitoring of damages of the articular cartilage of the knee joint. This article presents the results of a study of the articular cartilage of the knee joint in athletes based on the measurement of T2 relaxation time. Numerous studies have shown positive results in identifying structural changes in articular cartilage.
