Optical non-destructive evaluation of articular cartilage integrity : a review
Afara, Isaac O., Pawlak, Zenon, & Oloyede, Adekunle (2011) Optical non-destructive evaluation of articular cartilage integrity : a review. In The First International Conference on Engineering, Designing and Developing the Built Environment for Sustainable Wellbeing, 27-29 April, 2011., Brisbane.
This paper reviews the current status of the application of optical non-destructive methods, particularly infrared (IR) and near infrared (NIR), in the evaluation of the physiological integrity of articular cartilage. It is concluded that a significant amount of work is still required in order to achieve specificity and clinical applicability of these methods in the assessment and treatment of dysfunctional articular joints.
