Prediction of compressive stiffness of articular cartilage using Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy.


Unique biomechanical behavior of articular cartilage is a result of its structure and composition. Interrelationships of tissue constituents (collagen, proteoglycans (PGs) and water) and tissue biomechanical parameters have been studied, but it is evident that no constituent alone explains the tissue mechanics. Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectra can… (More)
