Rabbit Achilles tendons (N = 8) were subjected to tensile loading while internal water movements were followed using NMR. The distribution of the internal water in tendons was measured using a one-dimensional proton-density map that was collected along a radial line oriented transverse to the tendon's long axis. The proton density map was created from fits to T2 relaxation data. The experimental design included two cycles of loading (7.5 N tensile load) and relaxation. The first load… CONTINUE READING
