Although CT-scan data gives accurate geometrical information of bones, MRI data is commonly used instead due to its non-ionizing nature. The geometrical information has a number of applications, including image registration and computer simulations of the human joints, presurgical planning, prosthesis design, linking geometry with function and pain and kinematics. Hence, it is important to for the geometrical information extracted from the MRI data to be accurate. However, this information is influenced by the choice of the MRI sequence. Therefore, the aim of this study is to investigate the effect of different MRI sequences on the accuracy of geometrical information of bones.
