This study aims to use ultrasound to investigate the boundary effect of the cut edge on the osmosis-induced shrinkage and swelling of articular cartilage while the distance from the scanning site to the edge decreases with the reduction of specimen size. Sixteen cartilage-bone specimens (of diameter 6.35 mm) were prepared from normal bovine patellae. The… CONTINUE READING
