Analysis of in vivo 3-D internal kinematics of the joints of the foot.


This paper describes a methodology for the analysis of three-dimensional (3-D) kinematics of live joints of the foot based on tomographic image data acquired via magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. A mechanical jig facilitates acquisition of MR images corresponding to different positions of the joint in a pronation-supination motion. The surfaces of the… (More)
