  1. Data are mean ± standard deviation. The Mean medial - lateral differences in cartilage and bone parameter values between different groups of subjects is shown based on Student’s paired t test. * = p < 0.05, ** = P < 0.001. Group0 = control subjects, Group1 = mild OA subjects, Group2 = severe OA subjects
