Abstract

The use of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) in medicine has been proved to be invaluable in diagnosis but the full potential of MRI in research has yet to be realised. It is now possible to create models both in 2D or 3D from in-vivo data. In our studies it is now possible to obtain accurate data relating to the creation of models, in particular hard tissues such as bone. It is well documented that the patella is constructed not of a single material but a composite of three forms* and the material distribution is necessary when dealing in either dimensional mode e.g. 2D or 3D. Using MRI it is now possible to visualise the material distribution accurately in-vivo. 1 Introduction For some considerable time Nuclear
