    A Comparison of Three Different Methods of Measurement of Knee Deformity in Osteoarthritis

    The recognition of the pattern and severity of deformity in knee osteoarthritis has important implications in its management and prognosis. A number of methods can be used to assess and measure the coronal and sagittal knee alignment: clinical deformity measuring device like a goniometer, standard knee radiographs, hip-knee-ankle (HKA) radiographs,…

    Enhancement of Success Rate of Complex Surgical Cases through Biomodeling

    Biomodelling is a new technology that allows computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data to be used to generate solid plastic replicas of anatomical structures known as Biomodels. These Biomodels were produced using engineering manufacturing technology such as rapid prototyping (RP) system and is used for diagnosis, pre-operative…
