Figure 2: Parametric maps derived from the same DCE-MRI dataset reflecting the Gadolinium behaviour and distribution over time (Gd), maximum enhancement (ME), initial rate of enhancement (IRE), and time onset of enhancement (T-onset). The maps are derived from the baseline images of the case study representing a flair of moderate arthritis activity of the knee. Note the pulsation artefacts of the popliteal artery that give false “hot” points in the image related to a horizontal line of the artery.
