A technique using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is proposed for analysis of knee motion that is practical in the clinical situation. T1 weighted fast spin echo (FSE) and spoiled gradient echo (GE) sequences were compared to image both knees at 15 degrees intervals from 0 degrees to 90 degrees flexion, while unloaded and loaded. The medial and lateral(More)
Two methods of analysis of knee kinematics from magnetic resonance images (MRI) in vivo have been developed independently: mapping the tibiofemoral contact, and tracking the femoral condylar centre. These two methods are compared for the assessment of kinematics in the healthy and the anterior cruciate ligament injured knee. Sagittal images of both knees of(More)
Magnetic resonance (MR) images of 16 peripheral nerve tumors (14 patients) were correlated with histopathologic appearance. Thirteen patients had surgically proved neuro-fibromatosis. There were 10 neurofibromas, four schwannomas, and two neurofibrosarcomas. Seven of the 10 neurofibromas showed a target pattern of increased peripheral signal intensity and(More)
The purpose of the present study was to review retrospectively our experience with MRI in patients over the age of 50 who present to the emergency department with inability to weight bear following a fall and whose initial radiographs were normal. The study was designed to establish the incidence and pattern of bone and soft tissue injuries in these(More)
Fourteen patients with various synovial diseases were imaged using conventional radiographic techniques and MRI. We had five patients with synovial tumors, including two each with PVNS and synovial osteochondromatosis. We had five patients with infections and four patients with various other forms of arthritis. Although MRI was found to be a useful means to(More)
AIM To establish the effectiveness of early magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the diagnosis of scaphoid fracture in patients with suggestive clinical findings (but a normal initial X-ray) in an Australian major-referral emergency department METHODS A prospective study of patients who presented within 24 hours after trauma with clinical findings(More)
Two hundred and thirty four suspected primary bone and soft tissue tumours were investigated using plain films and MRI. The MR appearance of 200 of these tumours was assessed with respect to the intensity of the lesion, the homogeneity of the tumour, the presence or absence of a capsule or lobulation, whether the tumour was whorled or not and whether it(More)
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) was used to examine the characteristics of abnormal motion in the injured knee by mapping tibiofemoral contact. Eleven healthy subjects and 20 subjects with a unilateral ACL injury performed a leg-press against resistance. MRI scans of both knees at 15 degrees intervals from 0 degrees to 90 degrees of flexion were used to(More)
Progressive degeneration of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) deficient knee may be partly due to chondral trauma at the time of ACL rupture and repeat episodes of subluxation, but also due to aberrant kinematics altering the wear pattern at the tibiofemoral interface. The hypothesis that altered kinematics, represented by the tibiofemoral contact(More)
This prospective study used magnetic resonance imaging to record sagittal plane tibiofemoral kinematics before and after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction using autologous hamstring graft. Twenty patients with anterior cruciate ligament injuries, performed a closed-chain leg-press while relaxed and against a 150 N load. The tibiofemoral contact(More)
