Large variation found in 3-D UKA alignment analysis for femoral, tibial components
Recently published results showed large variation in the rotational plane for both femoral and tibial components during 3-D unicompartmental knee arthroplasty component alignment analysis in the standing position, suggesting the importance of component positioning.
Single image slice may not capture 3-D muscle measurements in rotator cuff tears
Patients with rotator cuff tears experience fatty infiltration increased percentages of most likely caused primarily by muscle atrophy and a single image slice did not capture 3-D muscle measurements, according to recently published data.
