FEA study into ankle kinematics and traumatic injury to the talar dome

The HBI has been conducting research into talar dome morphology for the past several years. We have demonstrated links between tibial pilon fractures and talar dome injuries not previously identified in the literature. Current literature has reported only 3 cases of injury to the talar dome during a tibial pilon fracture.However, over the last 10 years at the RBWH, we have identified 58 cases. These injuries have been digitally mapped and combined to observe common fracture patterns. With extensive access …

Use of 3D surface scan reconstructions to measure clinical parameters for paediatric cranio-facial patients

Surface topography captured using 3D non-contact scanning (3D photography) offers the ability to create a scaled 3D model of a patient’s external anatomy and to interrogate this model in order to measure clinically relevant anatomical parameters.This project will investigate the use of surface scanning in capturing external anatomical features for paediatric cranio-facial patients, in order to confirm the efficacy of use of this technique in a young population and to develop a workflow for measuring clinically relevant parameters describing the …
