The recent development of techniques in magnetic resonance imaging allows for the noninvasive monitoring of cartilage for disease progression, effects of lifestyle change, and results of medical interventions. In particular, the dGEMRIC technique has been used. Prior dGEMRIC data have been two-dimensional. Magnetic resonance equipment can currently produce three-dimensional dGEMRIC data, but software that analyzes three-dimensional data sets is lacking in practicality. This research improved existing software to better handle three-dimensional dGEMRIC data sets. Improvements were made to better facilitate (1) image section selection, (2) segmentation, (3) T1 mapping, and (4) statistical data analysis.
