I am somewhat confused on degeneration of "articular cartilage" (found at the end of bones) vs. meniscus degeneration.

There is another thread about a guy having damaged articular cartilage but a normal meniscus.

My MRI mentioned meniscus tear, but nothing about articular cartilage. Can an MRI detect articular cartilage problems?

Does knee osteoarthritis typically lead to articular cartilage damage coupled with meniscus damage? Is there a relation between the two in cases of knee osteoarthritis?
