The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), medial collateral ligament (MCL) and lateral collateral ligament (LCL) are types of cruciate ligaments. ACL is the most common injured ligament and it is important for stabilization of the knee. It is commonly injured especially in sports as a consequence, knee function and participation in physical activities will be limited. Our objective is to provide descriptive epidemiological data; study the prevalence as well as prov...

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: January 13, 2020
The effect of the applied RF field in an NMR experiment on the magnitude of the Spectral Density for a Dipolar Relaxation Mechanism is demonstrated theoretically. The effect is shown with Sin Cos Pulse as a concrete example. The order of magnitude of the magnetic moment where these effects will be significant for typical Rf amplitude values is derived. The effect may be of utility in providing an alternate method of control for MRI Tissue Contrast applications with further development. In contem...
