PURPOSE Segmentation of osseous structures from clinical MR images is difficult due to acquisition artifacts and variable signal intensity of bones. Segmentation of femoral head is required for evaluation of hip joint abnormalities such as cam- type femoroacetabular impingement. A parametric deformable model (PDM) framework was developed for segmentation of(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to investigate whether the femoral head-neck contour, characterised by the alpha angle, varies with the stage of physeal maturation using MRI evaluation of an asymptomatic paediatric population. METHODS Paediatric volunteers with asymptomatic hips were recruited to undergo MRI of both hips. Femoral head physes were(More)
BACKGROUND Total joint replacement (TJR) procedures have been one of the most rewarding interventions for treating patients suffering from joint disease. However, developing a periprosthetic joint infection (PJI) is a serious complication that is associated with the highest burden of cost and reduction in patients' quality of life compared to other(More)
