This narrative review article aims to examine current evidence of knee innervation in order to develop a technique of targeting pure sensory innervation of the knee joint without compromising motor function. A literature review of knee innervation was performed to gain an anatomic understanding of terminal sensory branches of the relevant target nerves (femoral, obturator, sciatic, and lateral femoral cutaneous). Pure sensory block of the knee joint is challenging due to important contributions from the muscular innervation close to the joint and the variability of nerves afferents contained within and around the adductor canal...

Deep learning models have outperformed some of the previous state-of-the-art approaches in medical image analysis. Instead of using hand-engineered features, deep models attempt to automatically extract hierarchical representations at multiple levels of abstraction from the data. Therefore, deep models are usually considered to be more flexible and robust solutions for image analysis problems compared to conventional computer vision models. They have demonstrated significant improvements in computer-aided diagnosis and automatic medical image analysis applied to such tasks as image segmentation, classification and registration...

OBJECTIVES: Magnetic resonance-guided high-intensity focused ultrasound (MR-HIFU) is a method to heat lesions noninvasively to a stable, elevated temperature and a well-suited method to induce local hyperthermia (41°C-43°C) in deep-seated tissues. Magnetic Resonance (MR) imaging provides therapy planning on anatomical images and offers temperature feedback based on near-real-time MR thermometry. Although constant acquisition of MR thermometry data is crucial to ensure prolonged hyperthermia, it limits the freedom to perform measurements of other MR parameters, which are of interest during hyperthermia treatments...
