The objective of this study was to further explore the cartilage volume changes in knee osteoarthritis (OA) over time using quantitative magnetic resonance imaging (qMRI). These were correlated with demographic, clinical, and radiological data to better identify the disease risk features. We selected 107 patients from a large trial (n = 1,232) evaluating(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the change in osteoarthritic (OA) knee cartilage volume over a two-year period with the use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and to correlate the MRI changes with radiologic changes. METHODS Thirty-two patients with symptomatic knee OA underwent MRI of the knee at baseline and at 6, 12, 18, and 24 months. Loss of cartilage volumes(More)
The objective of this study was to identify, on a symptomatic knee osteoarthritis (OA) cohort, the risk factors associated with the progression of the disease. More specifically, we investigated the correlation between knee cartilage volume loss from subregions over the span of 24 months by means of quantitative magnetic resonance imaging (qMRI) with(More)
Total knee arthroplasty is a common procedure, and current navigation systems are gradually gaining acceptance for improving surgical accuracy and clinical outcomes. A new navigation system used within the surgical field, iAssist, has demonstrated reproducible accuracy in component alignment. All orientation information is captured by small electronic pods(More)
This paper aims at developing a quantitative system for measuring human hip cartilage thickness and volume using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). A new MRI-acquisition technique, named axial rotation, where the acquisition planes are organized around a virtual axis, was used. The MRI protocol consists of a 2-D multiple-echo data image combination (MEDIC)(More)
The great majority of malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors (MPNST) exhibit Schwannian differentiation. In recent years, a subset of perineurial MPNST (malignant perineurioma) has been identified based on their histologic, immunohistochemical and ultrastructural features. Immunopositivity for epithelial membrane antigen (EMA), glut-1 and claudin-1, is(More)
