|Elastography for evaluation of patellar tendon and quadriceps tendon elasticity: effect of knee position|
In conclusion, the elasticity of patellar and quadriceps tendons is dependent on knee position. In particular, in passive extension the elasticity of both the patellar and quadriceps tendon is significantly lower than in passive flexion.
This knowledge is important for the standardization of knee position during ultrasound elastography examination.
