BACKGROUND Most in vivo knee kinematic analyses are based on external markers attached to the shank and the thigh. Literature data show that markers positioning and soft tissues artifacts affect the kinematic parameters of the bones true movement. Most of the techniques of quantification used were invasive. The aim of the present study was to develop and(More)
For patients with patterns ranging out of anthropometric standard values, patient-specific musculoskeletal modelling becomes crucial for clinical diagnosis and follow-up. However, patient-specific modelling using imaging techniques and motion capture systems is mainly subject to experimental errors. The aim of this study was to quantify these experimental(More)
The kinematic magnetic resonance imaging technique has been developed to provide a functional examination of the knee. Technical limitations require this examination to be performed in supine position, and the knee motion is represented by an assembly of static positions at different knee angles. However, the main knee function is to support the body weight(More)
A case of subdural arachnoid cyst of the thoracic spine was studied by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), myelography and CT myelography. Myelography and especially CT myelography suggested the diagnosis; MRI established it, showing the communication between the cyst and the subarachnoid space. Final characterization was based on surgical findings and(More)
Magnetic Resonance Elastography (MRE) is a non invasive technique based on the propagation of shear waves in soft tissues providing the quantification of the mechanical properties [1]. MRE was successfully applied to healthy and pathological muscles. However, the MRE muscle methods must be further improved to characterize the deep muscles. A way will be to(More)
BACKGROUND Pathologies of the muscles can manifest different physiological and functional changes. To adapt treatment, it is necessary to characterize the elastic property (shear modulus) of single muscles. Previous studies have used magnetic resonance elastography (MRE), a technique based on MRI technology, to analyze the mechanical behavior of healthy and(More)
This present study aims to assess in vivo the nervous fibers distribution in the intervertebral disc using diffusion tensor imaging technique. Five healthy subjects participated into the data acquisition. Fiber extraction and tracking algorithms were used. The number of fibers in L4/5 disc ranges from 314 to 679 and the mean fiber length L4/5 in disc ranges(More)
