Bioimpedance spectroscopy for clinical assessment of tissues and the irradiated cancer tumors

N. Turgunova; V. Velikaya; L. Musabaeva; A. Aleinik; I. Anisenya; N. Martemyanova 2012 7th International Forum on Strategic Technology (IFOST), 2012

Cancer cells exhibit altered local dielectric properties compared to normal cells because of the difference in shape, size and orientation. These properties are measurable as a difference in electrical conductance using electrical impedance spectroscopy. Electrical impedance is one of the most often used parameters for characterizing material properties, especially in biomedical applications. Electrical impedance spectroscopy used for revealing both resistive ...


Articular Cartilage Tidemark in the Murine Knee Advances with Mechanical Loading

Allison W. Hsia; Frank C. Ko; Marjolein C. H. van der Meulen 2013 39th Annual Northeast Bioengineering Conference, 2013

Osteoarthritis (OA) is characterized by not only articular cartilage degeneration, but also subchondral bone sclerosis. While mechanically-induced cartilage degeneration may instigate tidemark advancement and subchondral bone thickening, the association between the two structures and the time course of tidemark advancement are unknown. Thus, in this study, we investigated the effects of mechanical loading on mouse tibial articular cartilage. Daily cyclic ...


Analysis of three-dimensional joint space of the tibiofemoral joint

Jang-Hwan Choi; Emily J. McWalter; Saikat Pal; Andreas Maier; Garry E. Gold; Rebecca Fahrig 2013 IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium and Medical Imaging Conference (2013 NSS/MIC), 2013

The purpose of this study was to quantify in vivo the differences in knee joint space volume between upright, weightbearing and supine, non- weightbearing conditions using C-arm computed tomography (CT) with sub- millimeter voxel size. Three volunteers were scanned while lying supine and while standing using a C-arm CT scanner. Using tantalum fiducial markers, patients' involuntary motion-induced artifacts were corrected ...


Automatic Assessment of Knee Osteoarthritis Parameters from Two-Dimensional X-ray Image

Hung-Chun Lee; Jiann-Shu Lee; Mark Chii-Jeng Lin; Chia-Hsiang Wu; Yung-Nien Sun First International Conference on Innovative Computing, Information and Control - Volume I (ICICIC'06), 2006

Knee osteoarthritis (OA) is one of the most common body complaints worldwide. As the prevalence of knee OA increases with age, the overall burden of this disease is expected to increase with the aging of the population. To assist doctors with accurate and reproducible assessment of knee OA parameters, we proposed an automatic approach using distance-based active shape models (ASM) ...


Atlas based method for the automated segmentation and quantification of knee features: Data from the osteoarthritis initiative

José Tamez-Peña; Patricia González; Joshua Farber; Karl Baum; Eduard Schreyer; Saara Totterman 2011 IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging: From Nano to Macro, 2011

This paper presents a fully unsupervised segmentation method for the segmentation of 3D DESS MRI images of the human knee. Five MRI knees manually segmented by human experts are used as reference atlases to automatically segment subsequent MRI images. The five segmentations are averaged to create the knee segmentation. The methodology was tested on the pilot Osteoarthritis Initiative (OAI) image ...

    Cartilage injuries in children and adolescents are increasingly observed, with roughly 20% of knee injuries in adolescents requiring surgery. In the US alone, costs of osteoarthritis (OA) are in excess of $65 billion per year (both medical costs and lost wages). Comorbidities are common with OA and are also costly to manage. Articular cartilage's low friction and high capacity to bear load makes it critical in the movement of one bone against another, and its lack of a sustained natural healing response has necessitated a plethora of therapies. Tissue engineering is an emerging technology at the threshold of translation to clinical use. Replacement cartilage can be constructed in the laboratory to recapitulate the functional requirements of native tissues. This book outlines the biomechanical and biochemical characteristics of articular cartilage in both normal and pathological states, through development and aging. It also provides a historical perspective of past and current cartil ge treatments and previous tissue engineering efforts. Methods and standards for evaluating the function of engineered tissues are discussed, and current cartilage products are presented with an analysis on the United States Food and Drug Administration regulatory pathways that products must follow to market. This book was written to serve as a reference for researchers seeking to learn about articular cartilage, for undergraduate and graduate level courses, and as a compendium of articular cartilage tissue engineering design criteria.
