Comparison of T2 and texture parameters in subjects with cartilage abnormalities and those without them. Subjects with cartilage abnormalities (cartilage whole-organ magnetic resonance imaging scores (WORMS) of greater than 0, n = 92) have elevated mean T2, grey level co-occurrence matrix (GLCM) entropy, GLCM contrast, and GLCM variance in comparison with subjects without abnormalities (cartilage WORMS = 0, n = 41). Values are averaged among all compartments.
