Comparisons of Outerbridge grade and the ADC, FA, and T2. (a) Significant differences in the ADC were observed between grades 0 and 2 (P = 0.041); 0 and 3 (P < 0.001); 1 and 2 (P = 0.045); 1 and 3 (P < 0.001); and 2 and 3 (P = 0.028). No significant difference was observed between grades 0 and 1. (b) Significant differences in the FA were observed between grades 0 and 1 (P < 0.001); 0 and 2 (P < 0.001); and 0 and 3 (P < 0.001). (c) Significant differences in T2 were observed between grades 0 and 2 (P = 0.032); 0 and 3 (P < 0.001); 1 and 3 (P < 0.001); and 2 and 3 (P < 0.001). No significant difference was noted between grades 0 and 1, 1 and 2.
