Research Summary
CT and RSA imaging are being used to study the maturation of regenerating tissue in leg lengthening and bone transport in patients requiring limb reconstruction, with the ultimate aim of evaluating techniques to improve outcome and reduce treatment time; patient-specific computational models of the regenerating tissue are constructed from the images. Mobility of bilateral lower limb amputees has been studied in a standard gait laboratory, and assessment techniques being developed for use during activities of daily living. Bone loss in spinal cord injured patients is being studied using peripheral quantitative CT, and corresponding changes in perfusion in bone is being measured with near infrared spectroscopy.
