|Elastography for evaluation of patellar tendon and quadriceps tendon elasticity: effect of knee position|
42 patellar tendons and 42 quadriceps tendon were examined.
For each tendon, the results of ratio between the two ROI were compared
using the t-test.
In passive extension the elasticity of the patellar tendon was significantly lower (p<0.001) than in passive flexion.
In passive extension the elasticity of the quadriceps tendon was significantly lower (p<0.005) than in passive flexion.
No differences between right and left sides were evident.
