Quantitative measurements of the coronoid in healthy adult patients.
Summary of "Quantitative measurements of the coronoid in healthy adult patients."
We investigated the hypothesis that a quantitative 3-dimensional computed tomography (CT) modeling technique that can measure size, shape, and proximal articular surface area can be used to develop formulas that could predict the volume and proximal surface area of the intact coronoid based on anatomical and demographic data available in patients with fracture of the coronoid process.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
The interaction of two or more substrates or ligands with the same binding site. The displacement of one by the other is used in quantitative and selective affinity measurements.
Quantitative Trait Loci
Locations, on the GENOME, of GENES or other genetic elements that encode or control the expression of a quantitative trait (QUANTITATIVE TRAIT, HERITABLE).
Quantitative Trait, Heritable
A characteristic showing quantitative inheritance such as SKIN PIGMENTATION in humans. (From A Dictionary of Genetics, 4th ed)
Quantitative Structure-activity Relationship
A quantitative prediction of the biological, ecotoxicological or pharmaceutical activity of a molecule. It is based upon structure and activity information gathered from a series of similar compounds.
Technique using an instrument system for making, processing, and displaying one or more measurements on individual cells obtained from a cell suspension. Cells are usually stained with one or more fluorescent dyes specific to cell components of interest, e.g., DNA, and fluorescence of each cell is measured as it rapidly transverses the excitation beam (laser or mercury arc lamp). Fluorescence provides a quantitative measure of various biochemical and biophysical properties of the cell, as well as a basis for cell sorting. Other measurable optical parameters include light absorption and light scattering, the latter being applicable to the measurement of cell size, shape, density, granularity, and stain uptake.
To compare the biomechanical characteristics of screw versus plate versus both screw and plate fixation for large, type 3 O'Driscoll coronoid fractures.
A pathologically elongated coronoid process forming a joint with the zygomatic arch and bone is termed as "Jacob's disease." Herein, we present a case of Jacob's disease, which has rarely been reporte...
