Valid clinical correlations with biomechanical data require three-dimensional visualization of a joint, in order to determine the true spatial configuration of the various segments of the part studied. The CAT scan has opened a new pathway in this direction, as it supplies precise mathematical information on the segments explored. An original analytical(More)
The aim of this study is to suggest an anatomic study of the modifications of the length of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and its bundles during flexion with the aid of a 3D computerized model of the knee in a living subject. The method of evaluation suggested is a 3D computerized reconstruction based on MRI sections, reproducing the movement of(More)
The aim of this work was to assess the 3D wear of non-metal-backed acetubular cups from two conventional digitized radiographs. The centers of the femoral head and the metal ring in the equatorial plane of the cup are located using 3D pose techniques for spheres and circles from sampled points in the images. The method used to locate these points of(More)
We have developed a 3D computed model of the knee joint, constructed from MRI acquisitions in a living individual. We have used this model to perform an anatomic and biometric study of the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) during flexion, and an assessment of the optimal location for an intraarticular graft. The method used a 3D computed model constructed(More)
The authors describe a device for measuring the resultant tensions existing at the intervertebral junction (or its constitutive elements) in all spine attitudes. The reported method has been applied to the L4-L5 junction of a spine taken from the corpse of a 50 years old man. Although incomplete, the results suggest the following points: --the L4-L5(More)
