    The article discusses a study of the use of three-dimensional (3D) musculoskeletal modeling and simulations of walking amputee to determine muscle contributions to body support and forward propulsion. The study involved 14 below-knee amputees. The major contributors to body support in early and...

    Supraspinatus tendon tears are common and lead to changes in the muscle architecture. To date, these changes have not been investigated for the distinct regions and parts of the pathologic supraspinatus. The purpose of this study was to create a novel three-dimensional (3D) model of the muscle...

    To better understand normative behavior for quantitative evaluation of motor recovery after injury, we studied arm movements by non-injured Rhesus monkeys during a food-retrieval task. While seated, monkeys reached, grasped, and retrieved food items. We recorded three-dimensional kinematics and...

    Background: Idiopathic congenital talipes equinovarus (CTEV) is the commonest form of clubfoot. Its exact cause is unknown, although it is related to limb development. The aim of this study was to quantify the anatomy of the muscle, subcutaneous fat, tibia, fibula and arteries in the lower legs...

    The aim of this study is to obtain information about the mouse tongue muscle rendered using micro-computed tomography (μCT) at low, middle, and high magnifications. Three-dimensional (3D) μCT is used in various fields. Most μCT observations are restricted to hard tissue in biomaterial...

    Tricuspid regurgitation (TR) is present in trace amounts or more in 82-86% of the population and is greater than mild in 14% of the population. In severe cases, it can contribute to right heart failure and adversely affect mitral valve repair durability. One major cause of TR is the dilation of...
