Özet

Objective In vivo measurement of articular cartilage thickness is a significant marker of structural joint damage in many inflammatory or noninflammatory diseases including rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis. The aim of this study was to assess the diurnal variation of femoral condylar cartilage thickness (FCT) in young adults by using ultrasonography.
