Prediction of synovial inflammation using magnetic resonance imaging in end-stage knee osteoarthritis: a cross-sectional study



The aim of the study is to predict histological synovitis in end-stage knee osteoarthritis using different MRI techniques, including dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI. Synovial biopsies are obtained intraoperatively (total knee arthroplasty) and the MRIs are performed prior to surgery.
