In this study we modeled a patient specific 3D knee after anterior cruicate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. The purpose of the ACL reconstruction is to achieve stability in the entire range of motion of the knee and the establishment of the normal gait pattern. We present a new reconstruction technique that generates patient-specific 3D knee models from(More)
Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis is the most common type of abnormal curvature observed in spine and it progresses rapidly during the puberty period. The most followed clinical way of assessing the spinal deformity is subjective by measuring the characteristic angles of spinal curve from a set of radiographic images. This paper presents a web-based(More)
AIM To evaluate the effects of early started combined therapy in Complex Regional Pain Syndrome-1 (CRPS-1) on the upper extremities. METHODS The study included 36 patients in the first stadium of CRPS-1 on the upper extremities The mean age of patients was 42.6±14.6, the majority of them (26 of 36) were females. The right side of the upper extremity was(More)
We developed the OBR-Scolio ontology that models scoliosis as pathological state of spine using the method of extracting from the FMA reference ontology in anatomical domain and the principal ontology framework of the OBR reference ontology, which is spread over anatomy, physiology and pathology domains. Following the FMA modeling framework, OBR-Scolio(More)
The broad fields of Bioengineering (BE) and Medical Informatics (MI) are among the most prominent and fastest developing scientific areas. These are considered as key, out of a few, challenges within crucial research and innovation strategies worldwide. Almost every university wanting to be in accordance with a technological progress offers a curricula in(More)
BACKGROUND Although intensively investigated, the procedures for assessment and monitoring of scoliosis are still a subject of controversies. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to assess validity and reliability of a number of physiotherapeutic measurements that could be used for clinical monitoring of scoliosis. METHODS Fifteen healthy (symmetric)(More)
This paper presents the application of knowledgeware technologies and CAD systems in the field of 3D non-invasive diagnosis of idiopathic spinal deformity, primarily scoliosis. Automation of the process of generating key diagnostic indicators and a 3D model of the spine, based on digitized dorsal surfaces of patients, is achieved by implementing VBA macros(More)
