Recently, the general finding of increased ankle cartilage stiffness to loading has been challenged, suggesting the need for the investigation of different in vivo loading conditions. Therefore, the objectives of the present study were to determine ankle (talar) cartilage deformation after in vivo loading using 3D volume change calculation and to establish(More)

BACKGROUND No consensus exists on how rehabilitation programs for lumbar discectomy patients with persistent complaints after surgery should be composed. A better understanding of normal and abnormal postoperative trunk muscle condition might help direct the treatment goals. METHODS A three-dimensional CT scan of the lumbar spine was obtained in 18(More)
BACKGROUND In this pilot study we wanted to evaluate the kinematics of a knee implanted with an artificial polycarbonate-urethane meniscus device, designed for medial meniscus replacement. The static kinematic behavior of the implant was compared to the natural medial meniscus of the non-operated knee. A second goal was to evaluate the motion pattern, the(More)
The aim of the study is to develop a clinically useful and reproducible method for evaluating lateral meniscal extrusion in normal and transplanted knees under different axial loading conditions. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound (US) were used to assess meniscal extrusion. Both types of imaging were performed at least 6 months postoperatively(More)
BACKGROUND The first aim of this study was to evaluate the correlation between clinical and physical-technical image quality applied to different strengths of iterative reconstruction in chest CT images using Thiel cadaver acquisitions and Catphan images. The second aim was to determine the potential dose reduction of iterative reconstruction compared to(More)
STUDY DESIGN Mixed model analysis of muscle functional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and electromyography (EMG) changes in lumbar muscles during trunk extension exercise at varying intensities. OBJECTIVE To gain insight within the relationship between muscle functional MRI and activity of the lumbar back muscles, which is related to exercise intensity.(More)
The purpose of this study was to identify optimal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) conditions to visualize discrete alterations of brachial plexus components, as part of a biomechanical study of minor nerve compression syndromes. A method was developed allowing direct comparison between the MRI image and the subsequently obtained matching anatomic section(More)
