The infratemporal fossa and its contents (particularly the pterygoid muscles) is a region difficult to explore, in spite of its importance in odontostomatological pathology. In order to reduce the indications that justify examination by computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging, for reasons of economy of health, the authors describe by application(More)
The influence of various modes of carrying a load of 16 kg (15.69 DaN) on the static positioning of the pelvic girdle and the thoracic and lumbar segments of the spine was examined in seven male subjects. The displacement of cutaneous markers attached to easily palpable skeletal landmarks was recorded using 4 CCD cameras; the data acquired were analysed(More)
The motion of thoracic and lumbar spine segments has been analysed by mean of the skin landmarks method on 14 volunteers (7 males, 7 females). Results demonstrate that: There is no significant difference between male and female. There is either facilitation, or limitation of the motion of the characteristic landmarks of the spinal segments during trunk(More)
The motion of the thoracic and lumbar spine segments was analysed by mean of the skin landmarks method in 14 volunteers (7 males, 7 females). The results demonstrated that there was no significant difference between men and women and there was either facilitation or limitation of the motion of the characteristic landmarks of spinal segments during trunk(More)
The analysis of the displacement of the pelvic girdle, during movements of the trunk in the anatomical orthogonal plans, was carried out by the technique of the cutaneous markers on two series of 7 male subjects and 7 female. The photographs made it possible to objectify angular displacements of reliable singular points and to observe that the abduction of(More)
The utility of the inferior oblique m. radioanatomical study by a FLASH 3D sequence in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Twenty eyes (ten healthy volunteers aged 21-32 years, without any history of significant ocular pathology) were explored by MRI (1 Tesla; cranial coil) and comparisons were made between spin echo (SE) T1 sequence (through the neuro-ocular(More)
The overall movement of the trunk is made up of two components, namely the movements of the pelvic girdle and the vertebrae. In the frontal plane, the amplitude of the pelvic movements appears to be relatively limited compared to the vertebral column whereas the pelvis makes the major contribution to the total rotational movement in the axial plane.
Physiological displacements of the trunk are the addition of these of the pelvic girdle and thoracic and lumbar spine segments. For a long time (3), this conjunction had been noticed but without numbered precisions. The purpose of this communication is to appreciate quantitatively, from a series of 16 subjects, the respective share of each components during(More)
The global amplitude of the movements of the trunk is the resultant of the sum of two components: the movements of the pelvic girdle and those of the vertebral segments. In order to assess the precise position of the pelvis in kinetics, we endeavored by the use of skin markers to determine whether reliable measurement points existed. The experiment showed(More)
In order to evaluate the rotation following radial and ulnar fractures, the authors propose radial, ulnar and humeral landmarks for a CT scan measure of radial and ulnar torsion. In the ulna, the dorsal at the level of the proximal radio-ulnar articulation, as well as the bicondylar axis of the humerus seem to be fair landmarks. Distally, the styloid(More)
