“Meten is weten…” (“To measure is to know…”)—Dutch saying
In recent decades the importance of quantitative imaging biomarkers has been increasingly recognized, both in research and clinical settings, motivated to a large extent by a growing understanding of the molecular basis of diseases and a need for precision medicine. Given the occurrence of many common, yet debilitating conditions in the musculoskeletal system, quantitative musculoskeletal imaging constitutes a topic of very active research in many parts of the world.
