Automatic analysis of magnetic resonance (MR) sequences for the diagnosis of ligament lesions

By Laurence S. Dooley, Frank Höwing and Diederich Wermser

Abstract

To date the diagnosis of carpal instabilities due to ligament lesions relies upon a qualitative examination of the patient's wrist. This paper presents a novel system where sequences of magnetic resonance images (MRI) are automatically analysed to measure the motion of several wrist bones. Resulting motion graphs provide a quantitative basis for diagnostic as well as scientific purposes. As the imaging method is non-invasive up to twelve different wrist positions can be measured giving a detailed insight into the motion of the bone
