  1. 1. Contrast-enhanced MRI of human knee cartilage Clinical applications of the novel dGEMRIC technique to study glycosaminoglycan content in articular cartilage

    University dissertation from Medicinsk Informationsteknik Universitetssjukhuset MAS, 205 02 Malmö

    Author : Carl Johan Tiderius; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2004]
    Keywords : orthopaedics; Surgery; traumatology; Kirurgi; ortopedi; traumatologi; exercise; osteoarthritis; anterior cruciate ligament; glycosaminoglycan; MRI; cartilage; dGEMRIC; knee; MEDICIN; MEDICINE;

    Abstract : Delayed gadolinium-enhanced MRI of cartilage (dGEMRIC) is a new technique to study cartilage glycosaminoglycan (GAG) content. The negatively charged contrast agent Gd-DTPA2-, injected intravenously, distributes in the cartilage inversely to the likewise negatively charged GAG. READ MORE

  2. 2. In vivo Sub-regional dGEMRIC Analysis and Contrast Distribution in Clinical Studies of Human Knee Cartilage

    University dissertation from Joint and Soft Tissue Unit

    Author : Zana Hawezi; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2013]
    Keywords : dGEMRIC; MRI; sub-regional; knee; cartilage; GAG; meniscus injury; osteoarthritis; exercise.; MEDICIN; MEDICINE;

    Abstract : Aims: This work was carried out to investigate whether considering cartilage depth in vivo dGEMRIC would provide additional information on the molecular content and changes in normal and diseased cartilage. Methods: Study I was a longitudinal study on 23 healthy volunteers; Study II was a case-control study on 9 sedentary individuals and 8 elite runners. READ MORE

  3. 3. Anterior Cruciate Ligament injury, Patient Variables, Outcomes and Knee Osteoarthritis

    University dissertation from Dept of Orthopedics

    Author : Paul Neuman; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2010]
    Keywords : knee osteoarthritis; meniscal injury; knee radiography; Anterior cruciate ligament injury ACL ; delayed gadolinium-enhanced MRI of cartilage dGEMRIC ; MEDICIN; MEDICINE;

    Abstract : The ruptured anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) leads to immediate symptoms that severely affect the individual and receives great attention among the scientific community, yet there is still no consensus on the optional form of treatment. An ACL injury is also a well known high risk factor for the development of knee osteoarthritis (OA) some decades later. READ MORE

  4. 4. Human studies evaluating dGEMRIC as a prognostic tool for knee osteoarthritis

    University dissertation from Orthopaedics

    Author : Henrik Owman; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2014]
    Keywords : knee; Delayed gadolinium-enhanced MRI of cartilage dGEMRIC ; cartilage; glycosaminoglycan; anterior cruciate ligament injury; meniscal injury; osteoarthritis; joint space narrowing; osteophyte; MEDICIN; MEDICINE;

    Abstract : Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common joint disorder worldwide, causing joint pain and stiffness. The current gold standard for diagnosing knee OA is radiography. However, the disease has often progressed well beyond the point of no return once radiographic cartilage changes become visible. READ MORE

  5. 5. Subject-specific musculoskeletal modeling of the lower extremities in persons with unilateral cerebral palsy

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Olesya Klets; KTH.; [2011]
    Keywords : cerebral palsy; moment arm; muscle length; hemiplegic; MRI; subject-specific; musculoskeletal modeling; lower extremities; muscle volume; TECHNOLOGY Other technology Mechanical engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Övriga teknikvetenskaper Maskinteknik;

    Abstract : The computational musculoskeletal models that are used to study muscle moment-generating capacities of persons with movement disorders and planning treatment options must be accurate, and take into account the inter-individual variability of musculoskeletal geometry.In Paper I the methods of creating the subject-specific musculoskeletal model of the lower extremities from magnetic resonance images (MRIs) were developed.
