T2* relaxometry and volume predict semi-quantitative histological scoring of an ACL bridge-enhanced primary repair in a porcine model

By |2020-07-27T16:09:05+00:00August 1st, 2015|

Publication: Journal of Orthopaedic Research Date: August 2015 Authors: Biercevicz AM, Proffen BL, Murray MM, Walsh EG, Fleming BC Link to Full Text Abstract Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) variables, such as T2* and volume, can predict the healing ligament structural properties. How these MR variables relate to semi-quantitative histology of the healing ACL is yet [...]
