The objective of this work is to evaluate differences in trabecular bone (TB) texture between subjects with and without tibiofemoral cartilage defects using a variance orientation transform (VOT) method. A case-control study was performed in subjects without radiographic knee osteoarthritis (OA) (K&L grade = 2) and controls (n 28) had no cartilage defects (grade 0.05) were found.
