Several grading scales incorporating combinations of features have been developed. The two most widely utilized systems are the KL grading [4] and the Osteoarthritis Research Society International (OARSI) grading system [27]. Both systems have been applied widely in clinical trials and epidemiologic studies. The KL grading is traditionally used to classify populations according to those who have OA with a grade of ³2. The individual radiographic features of the OARSI grading system have been widely used both in cross-sectional and observational epidemiologic studies, with JSN as a surrogate measure of disease progression, although more recent studies have tended to use quantitative measures of JSW.
