  • The Mechanical Characteristics Of Soft Tissue

    2254 Words  | 10 Pages

    characteristics of soft tissue are the basis for several clinical and nonclinical research studies, such as brain surgical simulation or breast needle biopsy (Kaster et al., 2011; O’Hagan & Samani, 2009). Usually, anomalies found within the breast are investigated by palpation techniques, in which responses of soft tissue to large deformation are utilized (Goodson, 1996). Recent research on the mechanical properties of soft tissue under compressive load has revealed that tissues exhibit a linear stress-strain

  • The Effect Of Soft Tissue Constituent Materials

    1422 Words  | 6 Pages

    identify the effect of soft tissue constituent materials in tissue classification for the application of breast cancer detection. Hyperelastic parameters may be essential in estimating large deformation in tissue for the purpose of surgical procedures such as breast brachytherapy. These properties of human soft tissue play a significant role in diagnosis, screening, and monitoring of cancer (O’Hagan & Samani, 2009). On the other hand, elastography is based mainly on the concept of tissue reactions (linear

  • Soft Tissue Repair Case Study

    2065 Words  | 9 Pages

    Soft Tissue Repair Case Study: The Four Phase of Soft Tissue Healing and Therapeutic Interventions that can be used to Aid Progression of Repair. In this essay we will discuss the four different phases of the soft tissue healing process and also explain all the components of each particular phase and how it functions. This will also include sport therapeutic interventions that may contribute to the healing process and that may maximise healing of soft tissue. First Phase – Bleeding This particular

  • The Effect Of Compression Over Bioimpedance Of Healthy Soft Tissue

    1658 Words  | 7 Pages

    compression over bioimpedance of healthy soft tissue (in-vitro and in-vivo). Electrical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) is a promising tissue characterization and tumor detection technique that uses tissue impedance or admittance to characterize tissue and identify tissue properties as well as cell structure. Variation in EIS measurements while applying pressure suggests that compression tends to affect soft tissue bioimpedance. Moreover, the displacements in tissue caused by applied compression may provide

  • Soft Tissue Tumor

    383 Words  | 2 Pages

    Soft tissue sarcomas are a rare form of tumour, accounting for less than 1% of all cancer and arise from mesenchyme. Low-grade fibromyxoid sarcoma (LGFMS) is a form of fibrosarcoma which has a high tendency to metastasise1. It commonly occurs in the deep soft tissues in the lower limbs but can also be found in the trunk, groin and upper limbs. Its peak incidence is in 20-50 year olds with no gender predilection and it commonly presents as a firm, painless, slow-growing tumour 1 2. Evan’s first

    is often associated with discomfort and limited range of motion. Those symptoms might mean something more serious. That is when it is time for them to be examined by an orthopedist. So, what are the most common type of fall injuries? Soft Tissue Injuries Soft tissue injuries aren't always visible, because they can be internal. You

  • Soft Tissue Analysis

    333 Words  | 2 Pages

    joint relies on multiple soft-tissue structures to maintain bony alignment during weightu bearing and movement. If the knee is exposed to forces beyond its physiologic range, bone or soft-tissue structures are at risk of injury (1). Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is now widely used for imaging injuries of internal structures of the knee, and has replaced conventional arthrography and diagnosticu arthroscopy. It is usuperior to computedu tomography (CT) for imagingu of soft tissue structures. Accurate

  • History Of Soft Tissue Therapy

    of existing touch therapies in the early part of the 20h century. This soft tissue technique developed almost simultaneously both in Europe and America. Its roots clearly stem from a core group of researchers within the medical community. Its very first steps came out of Europe from a pair of cousins who where extensively trained as naturopath's and chiropractors. Stanley Lief and Boris Chaitow studied existing soft tissue theory and integrated assessment techniques for identifying joint dysfunction

  • Essay On Soft Tissue Mobilizationation

    1496 Words  | 6 Pages

    Given the patient’s initial presentation and pain level during the evaluation, soft-tissue mobilization and myofascial release was performed. The patient was positioned supine with one pillow and a bolster placed under bilateral lower extremities. Extreme stiffness in bilateral sternocleidomastoid muscles consisted as the main focus of the initial treatment. The manual strokes were applied with moderate pressure in a superior to inferior fashion along the direction of the muscle fibers. Treatment

  • Polycaprolactone: Soft Tissue Research

    826 Words  | 4 Pages

    An FDA approved polymer that I believe can be used for soft tissue replacement is polycaprolactone, PCL. Polycaprolactone is a biodegradable polymer. Biodegradable polymers break down into natural byproducts after their purpose has been fulfilled. These byproducts include water, inorganic salts, etc. Often biodegradable polymers are used in the medical field bone and cartilage engineering. Polycaprolactone has been applied to bone repair, cartilage repair and bone regeneration. Because of this
