The femoral footprint of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is a much-studied anatomic structure, predominantly due to its importance during ACL reconstruction surgery. A new technique utilising high-resolution micro-computed tomography (micro-CT) is described, allowing detailed three-dimensional (3D) quantitative analysis of this structure. Seven cadaveric knees were scanned using micro-CT, yielding ...

Anatomic placement of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) grafts at arthroscopic reconstruction can be challenging. Localising ACL attachments on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) sequences pre-operatively could aid with planning for anatomic graft placement. Though ACL attachments can be identified on two-dimensional (2D) MRI, slice thickness theoretically limits out-of-plane accuracy and a ...

Semantic interoperability requires consistency in use of terminologies such as SNOMED CT. Inter-rater agreement measurement can be used to quantify this consistency among terminology users. Increasingly, studies of SNOMED CT include inter-rater agreement measures. However, published studies do not consider distance between concepts when calculating the inter-rater agreement measures. In ...
