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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
Kinematics in osteoarthritic knees may be impeding efforts to reproduce "normal" knee kinematics in the prosthetic knee. Fourteen subjects with unilateral symptomatic knee osteoarthritis performed a supine leg press from 0 degrees to 90 degrees flexion against a 150-N load. The tibiofemoral contact pattern was recorded for both knees using sagittal(More)
