^^ as cartilage is non-vascular, healing is unlikely and generally not seen; your friend's MRI is more likely to have been misread. This nonvascular nature of cartilage makes it nearly impossible for growth or repair building blocks to get to it, except for miniscule amounts in joint fluid, but it's not clear even all the ingredients for growth are found there.
