Characterizing Growth of the Knee Joint

Project Collaborator:

MRI of rabbit knee

Magnetic resonance image (MRI)
and histological section of the
proximal tibia in a young rabbit.

We have evaluated custom MR imaging coils that allow us to characterize the growth of the knee joint in small experimental animals. Comparisons to mechanical testing will help us use these images for development of computational models of the knee joint to study the effect of biomechanics on growth.
