near-full-thickness to full-thickness articular cartilage loss with adjacent
surface fraying. There is a small focus of mild chondromalacia in the lateral

high-grade articular cartilage loss involving the medial and lateral patellar
facets with multiple foci of underlying degenerative subchondral marrow
