Purpose: The purpose of this study is to propose and evaluate a slice-to-volume registration (SVR) method integrating an advanced dual-slice real-time magnetic resonance image (MRI) and three-dimensional (3D) MRI volume of the tibiofemoral joint for determining their 3D kinematics. Methods: The real-time and 3D MRI of the knee were collected from 12 healthy adults at 5 static flexion positions and during dynamic flexion/extension movement. The 3D positions and orientations of the femur and tibia were obtained by registering their volumetric models constructed from the 3D MRI to dual-slice real-time MRI using an optimization process. The proposed method was quantitatively evaluated for its performance in terms of the robustness and measurement accuracy, and compared to those of a single-slice SVR method. Its repeatability in measuring knee kinematics during flexion/extension movement was also determined. Results: In comparison to the single-slice SVR method, the dual-slice method was significantly superior, giving a successful registration rate?>?95%, a bias less than 0.5?mm in translations and 0.6° in rotations and a precision <0.7?mm in translations and 0.9° in rotations for determining the 3D tibiofemoral poses. For repeatability of the dual-slice SVR in measuring tibiofemoral kinematics during dynamic flexion/extension, the means of the time-averaged standard deviations were <0.9° for joint angles and 0.5?mm for joint translations. Conclusion: A dual-slice SVR method in conjunction with real-time MRI has been developed and evaluated for its performance in measuring 3D kinematics of the tibiofemoral joint in 12 young adults in terms of the accuracy, robustness, and repeatability. The proposed MRI-based 3D measurement method provides a noninvasive and ionizing radiation-free approach for 3D kinematic measurement of the tibiofemoral joint, which will be helpful for future academic and clinical applications. ? 2019 American Association of Physicists in Medicine
