Knee Bone Marrow Lesions Diagnostic Test: mri

Layout table for study information
Study Type : Observational
Estimated Enrollment : 500 participants
Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Retrospective
Official Title: Validation of a New Topographic Classification of Bone Marrow Lesions of the Knee
Actual Study Start Date : May 14, 2019
Estimated Primary Completion Date : May 30, 2019
Estimated Study Completion Date : May 30, 2019

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
a Diagnostic Test: mri
knee mri

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The researchers will calculate the prevalence of BMLs in knee MRI and calculate the intra-observer and inter-observer reliability of the new classification proposed. [ Time Frame: The lesions will be evaluated on knee MRI performed in the period between January 2017 to December 2018 ]
    This study proposes a topographic classification for knee BMLs consisting in 5 different types of lesions. the classification proposed will be validated by 3 independent researchers.
