Grahic Jump Location
Jamshidi-type bone biopsy needle (Allegiance Healthcare Corp., McGaw Park, IL). Inset shows close-up of needle tip.
Grahic Jump Location
Testing configuration for bone biopsy needles. The urethane bone analog is attached to a load/torque cell (not shown).
Grahic Jump Location
(a) Insertion energy and (b) peak resisting force comparisons of bone biopsy needle insertion into human PSIS and urethane bone analog. Use of the bone analog reduced the coefficient of variation (standard deviation/average) of insertion energy from 35 to 10 percent, and of peak resisting force from 34 to 10 percent.
Grahic Jump Location
(a) Force and (b) torque waveforms of bone biopsy needle insertion into human PSIS and urethane bone analog. Light lines are the human PSIS data captures with the lowest, median and highest insertion energies (IE’s), and the dark line is the urethane bone analog data capture with the median insertion energy (IE).
Grahic Jump Location
Typical data capture of bone biopsy needle insertion (baseline insertion protocol) into urethane bone analog. Arrow indicates cortico-cancellous transition.
