MR-Compatible Compression Device for In-Vitro Evaluation of Biomechanical Properties of Cartilage
Journal of Biomechanical Science and Engineering
Objective: Purpose of the paper is to present and validate a device for cartilage compression for assessment of MR parameters (T1, T2, ADC) in cartilage explants before, during and after compression operating with novel features. Design: This device fits into a BGA-12 micro-imaging gradient system capable of delivering 200mT/m. A 35 mm inner diameter resonator was used. The reproducibility and accuracy of cartilage compression possible with the device were evaluated. Sixteen human cartilagedoi:10.1299/jbse.3.200 fatcat:eqxemlve6rd4dl4uc7f3ntiuiu
