Close collaboration between multidisciplinary specialists (physicists, biomecanical engineers, medical radiologists and pediatric orthopedic surgeons) has led to the development of a new low-dose radiation device named EOS. EOS has three main advantages: The use of a gaseous X-ray detector, invented by Georges Charpak (Nobel Prizewinner 1992), the dose(More)
STUDY DESIGN We evaluated a computer-assisted surgical tool for inserting pedicle screws. OBJECTIVES This study reviewed the feasibility, usefulness, and accuracy of the proposed tool. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Reviews documented neurovascular damage caused by screw misplacement. Currently, screw hole position is assessed by radiologic means and(More)
BACKGROUND Knowledge concerning morphology of the spine is reported in 2-dimensional (2D) or focuses on modification of parameters with progression of spinal deformation. The objective of this study was to compare 3-dimensional (3D) morphologic parameters of the spine at the first visit between progressive and a nonprogressive group of immature adolescent(More)
STUDY DESIGN This is a prospective case-control study. OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to compare 3-dimensional (3D) morphological parameters of the spine at the first visit between a nonprogressive (NP) and a progressive (P) group of immature adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS). SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Prediction of curve progression(More)
BACKGROUND Various surgical techniques to treat posterolateral knee instability have been described. To date, the recommended treatment is an anatomical form of reconstruction, in which the 3 key structures of the posterolateral corner are addressed: the lateral collateral ligament, the popliteofibular ligament, and the popliteus tendon. HYPOTHESIS Two(More)
With the variable injury pattern to the posterolateral structures (PLS) of the knee, a number of reconstructive procedures have been introduced. It was the aim of the present study to evaluate the resulting 3D kinematics following three different surgical techniques of reconstruction in a combined posterior cruciate ligament (PCL)/PLS injury model. In nine(More)
PURPOSE To allow a reliable deformable image registration (DIR) method for dose calculation in radiation therapy. This work proposes a performance assessment of a morphological segmentation algorithm that generates a deformation field from lung surface displacements with 4DCT datasets. METHODS From the 4DCT scans of 15 selected patients, the deep exhale(More)
