  • Volumetric measurement of polyacrylamide hydrogel

    2014-3-1 · The PAHG may also infiltrate into the surrounding tissues and cause degeneration. All traits of PAHG lead to its irregular distribution, which makes the volume measurement more complex. Sun et al have reported a method using a 3-D MRI reconstruction technique to determine the volume and distribution of the PAHG . However, the study mainly focused on investigating an effective diagnostic method and did not analyze the precision of the measurement method.
