Summary of "Raman spectroscopy-based water content is a negative predictor of articular human cartilage mechanical function."

Probing the change in water content is an emerging approach to assess early diagnosis of osteoarthritis (OA). We herein developed a new method to assess hydration status of cartilage nondestructively using Raman spectroscopy (RS), and showed association of Raman-based water and organic content measurement with mechanical properties of cartilage. We further compared Raman-based water measurement to gravimetric and MRI-based water measurement.
