To all users:

My research work entails finite element modeling of the lower extremity to
help provide a better understanding to the mechanisms of injury to the
ACL. I have acquired all bones of the lower extremity for my work but
having much trouble finding the 3D geometries of the major ligaments of
the knee joint. I am looking for geometries of the ACL, PCL, MCL, and LCL.
I have enquired at a few research labs without success and I have also
check with companies such as Digimation, Voxel Man, and Zygote Media
Group, also without success. Does anyone know where I can obtain the 3D
geometries these ligaments without having to go through the process of
segmenting MRIs. Do advice. Greatly appreciate your help.

Thanks and best regards,
