The water apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) in rabbit Achilles tendon is anisotropic, diffusion-time dependent, and changes as a function of tensile load. Water ADC changes of tendon under mechanical load are thought to be due to the extrusion of water from the more restricted tendon core to a relatively unrestricted bulk phase at the periphery (rim) of(More)
Water diffusion measurements were performed on rabbit Achilles tendons during static tensile loading and tendons in an unloaded state. The apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) was measured along two directions: parallel and perpendicular to the long axis of the tendon. Tendons were studied after being prepared in two ways: (a) after being stored frozen in(More)
The redistribution of water in response to static tensile loading was investigated in rabbit Achilles tendons in vitro. The distribution of water was measured along a radially oriented line, using a one-dimensional proton-density map created from fits to diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance (MR) data. Water movements were measured during application of(More)
Tendons exhibit viscoelastic mechanical behavior under tensile loading. The elasticity arises from the collagen chains that form fibrils, while the viscous response arises from the interaction of the water with the solid matrix. Therefore, an understanding of the behavior of water in response to the application of a load is crucial to the understanding of(More)
A dynamically reconfigurable fiber-wireless network using flexible wavelength routing techniques is proposed by the PRISMA project, which offers a “forecast-tolerant” solution for handling a wide variety of wireless services and capacity demands as may emerge in the fast evolving market of mobile communications. This approach can considerably increase the(More)
The main objective of this paper is to present the HARMONICS project. HARMONICS is a project partially funded by the European Commission through the IST programme, in the area of All-optical and Terabit networks, which started on May 1, 2000, and has a duration of 36 months. It is a co-operative project lead by Lucent Technologies Nederland, joining in the(More)
(for dissemination) In the MUSE project, various deployment scenarios, Access Platforms and First-Mile technologies are subjected to a number of studies. Subproject D focuses on high-speed access technologies. The first versions of the Access Solution prototypes have become available. This milestone, DD2.2 presents VDSL over Optics (VDSLoO) and Advanced(More)
The ever-increasing use of broad-band Internet and complex multimedia applications is pushing fiber closer and closer to the homes. Within the European project IST HARMONICS (Hybrid Access Reconfigurable Multi-wavelength Optical Networks for IP-based Communication Services), an optical access feeder network and resource management framework were developed(More)
