High Speed Stereo Radiography

This project supported the acquisition of a stereo radiography system with large field-of-view detectors and high speed Phantom cameras to enable state-of-the-art measurement of bone and joint motion at a sub-mm level.  Located in the Human Dynamics Laboratory, bi-plane radiographs can be captured simultaneously with motion capture, force plate, and electromyography (EMG) data.  Planned studies will investigate natural and implanted mechanics in the knee, hip, spine and foot.

This project was supported by:
