Arrows indicate autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI) on the medial femoral condyle (MFC). The patient is doing well and is clinically symptom free. The highest numbers on the dGEMRIC scale represent high proteoglycan content and are blue-green in color. The lowest numbers in yellowred represent lessened proteoglycan content. The highest proteoglycan content is generally in the deep and middle layers of the articular cartilage, as is seen in this image.
