Ultrasound elastography to determine the layered mechanical properties of articular cartilage and the importance of such structural characteristics under load.

Abstract:

Articular cartilage is an important load bearing surface in joints. Prone to damage and with limited self-repair ability, it is of interest to tissue engineers. Tissue implant design requires full mechanical characterisation of healthy native tissue. A layered organisation of reinforcing collagen fibrils exists in healthy articular cartilage and is believed to be important for correct tissue function. However, the effect of this on the local depth-dependent elasticity is poorly characterised....
