Quantitative mapping of acute and chronic PCL pathology with 3 T MRI: a prospectively enrolled patient cohort


Background

The diagnosis of incomplete acute and chronic posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) tears can be challenging with conventional magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, particularly for injuries in which the ligament appears continuous as occurs with chronic PCL tears that have scarred in continuity. Quantitative mapping from MR imaging may provide additional useful diagnostic information in these […]

Clinical and Radiologic Outcomes After Scaphoid Fracture: Injury and Treatment Patterns in National Football League Combine Athletes Between 2009 and 2014

2017 Arthroscopy Journal

Scaphoid fractures account for up to 70% of all carpal fractures in athletes, usually affecting young male patients. These injuries are usually associated with a traumatic event; however, stress fractures of the scaphoid have also been reported. Many scaphoid fractures presenting in the acute phase have “normal” initial […]

Incidence and Detection of Meniscal Ramp Lesions on Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Patients With Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction

2017 AJSM

Increased attention has been directed toward the identification and treatment of concomitant knee injuries associated with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears to best restore knee biomechanics and function. Studies have reported that 43% of patients with ACL tears have concomitant lateral or medial meniscal tears. Meniscocapsular tears of […]

Ligamentous Reconstruction of the Knee: What Orthopaedic Surgeons Want Radiologists to Know

Seminars in Musculoskeletal Radiology 2017

Knee ligament injuries are common, and treatment methods are continually evolving. Accurate clinical diagnosis with imaging confirmation is critical to support appropriate treatment. Several imaging pearls allow for improved recognition of injuries. Stress radiographs may be obtained to […]

Quantifiable Imaging Biomarkers for Evaluation of the Posterior Cruciate Ligament Using 3-T Magnetic Resonance Imaging


OJSM 2016

Quantitative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques, such as T2 and T2 star (T2*) mapping, have been used to evaluate ligamentous tissue in vitro and to identify significant changes in structural integrity of a healing ligament. These studies lay the foundation for a clinical study that uses quantitative mapping to evaluate ligaments in vivo, […]
