The purpose of the study is to use different x-ray and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging techniques to take pictures of the knee. There are two specific purposes to the study: 1. whether...
The objectives of this study are: to identify and develop techniques to minimize precision errors in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) evaluation of knee cartilage, and to determine if resu...
The purpose of this study is to use better magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques to examine the knee and the bony and soft tissue changes so as to better predict the progression of o...
Blood-Oxygen-Level-Dependent (BOLD) functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) responses to painful mechanical stimulation of the OA knee following treatment with four consecutive doses ...
The results of the proposed experiments will directly inform clinicians who treat patients with osteoarthritis of the knee about how to maximize the benefits of acupuncture treatments. An...
To measure the range of T values of synovitis using three Tesla (3 T) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in patients with osteoarthritis to assess the potential of T mapping for identifying synovitis f...
To examine whether baseline knee joint effusion volume and the change in effusion volume over 1 year are associated with cartilage volume loss, progression of radiographic OA (ROA) over 4 years and ri...
To investigate the relationship between meniscus magnetic resonance (MR) relaxation parameters and meniscus degradation through quantitative imaging of ex vivo posterior horns of menisci from subjects...
Genetically engineered chondrocytes virally transduced with a transforming growth factor (TGF)-1 (TG-C [TissueGene-C]) expression vector have been shown to have potential benefits in the nonoperative ...
To investigate determinants of decrease and increase in joint pain in symptomatic finger osteoarthritis (OA) on magnetic resonance (MR) imaging over two years.
Spectroscopic method of measuring the magnetic moment of elementary particles such as atomic nuclei, protons or electrons. It is employed in clinical applications such as NMR Tomography (MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING).
A technique applicable to the wide variety of substances which exhibit paramagnetism because of the magnetic moments of unpaired electrons. The spectra are useful for detection and identification, for determination of electron structure, for study of interactions between molecules, and for measurement of nuclear spins and moments. (From McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of Science and Technology, 7th edition) Electron nuclear double resonance (ENDOR) spectroscopy is a variant of the technique which can give enhanced resolution. Electron spin resonance analysis can now be used in vivo, including imaging applications such as MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING.
Noninflammatory degenerative disease of the knee joint consisting of three large categories: conditions that block normal synchronous movement, conditions that produce abnormal pathways of motion, and conditions that cause stress concentration resulting in changes to articular cartilage. (Crenshaw, Campbell's Operative Orthopaedics, 8th ed, p2019)
A type of MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING that uses only one nuclear spin excitation per image and therefore can obtain images in a fraction of a second rather than the minutes required in traditional MRI techniques. It is used in a variety of medical and scientific applications.
The creation of a visual display of the inside of the entire body of a human or animal for the purposes of diagnostic evaluation. This is most commonly achieved by using MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; or POSITRON EMISSION TOMOGRAPHY.
