PURPOSE Anatomic placement of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) grafts at arthroscopic reconstruction can be challenging. Localising ACL attachments on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) sequences pre-operatively could aid with planning for anatomic graft placement. Though ACL attachments can be identified on two-dimensional (2D) MRI, slice thickness(More)
Currently, acetabular rounding is only subjectively assessed on ultrasound for developmental dysplasia of the hip. We tested whether acetabular rounding can be quantified reliably and can distinguish between hips requiring and not requiring treatment. Consecutive infants (n = 90) suspected of having dysplasia of the hip, seen at a pediatric orthopedic(More)
Aseptic loosening represents the most common complication associated with hip and knee arthroplasty and is a common indication for surgical revision in the post-arthroplasty population. The optimal imaging methodology in evaluating clinical suspected loosening is not well-defined. Our study retrospectively evaluated nuclear medicine arthrography with hybrid(More)
PURPOSE To use three-dimensional ( 3D three-dimensional ) ultrasonography (US) to quantify the alpha-angle variability due to changing probe orientation during two-dimensional ( 2D two-dimensional ) US of the infant hip and its effect on the diagnostic classification of developmental dysplasia of the hip ( DDH developmental dysplasia of the hip ).

BACKGROUND Delay of as much as 5 months between ACL injury and surgery is known to be associated with increased risk of a medial meniscal tear, but the risk of additional meniscal tear progression with a longer delay to surgery is unclear. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES We determined the (1) times of injury, MRI, and surgery in adolescents with ACL tears, and whether(More)
BACKGROUND To aid in performing anatomic physeal-sparing anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction, it is important for surgeons to have reference data for the native ACL attachment positions and epiphyseal anatomy in skeletally immature knees. PURPOSE To characterize anatomic parameters of the ACL tibial insertion and proximal tibial epiphysis at(More)
BACKGROUND Current techniques of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction focus on the placement of femoral and tibial tunnels at anatomic ACL attachments, which can be difficult to identify intraoperatively. PURPOSE To determine whether the 3-dimensional (3D) center of ACL attachments can be reliably detected from routine magnetic resonance(More)
PURPOSE To determine whether 3-dimensional notch volume, measured with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), differs significantly between knees with torn and intact anterior cruciate ligaments (ACLs) after sports injury in a skeletally immature pediatric population. METHODS MRI studies of 50 pediatric patients (age range, 10 to 17 years) with ACL tears were(More)
PURPOSE To minimize the burden of overutilisation of lumbar spine magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) on a resource-constrained public healthcare system, it may be helpful to image some patients with mechanical low-back pain (LBP) using a simplified rapid MRI screening protocol at 1.5-T.
