Real time visualization of joint cavitation

Real-time imaging of MCP joint cavitation with rapid MRI during long axis traction

Despite decades of research, the underlying mechanism associated with joint "cracking" has yet to be scientifically validated. Until recently little was known regarding the process by which noises were emitted from the joint when distraction forces were applied. The current study utilized real-time MRI for the first time to visualize the MCP joint space while a long-axis traction force was applied.
