Description: Purpose: To determine the usefulness of clinical imaging in predicting the mechanical properties of rabbit Achilles tendons after acute injury.
Conclusions: Normal peak loads 4 wk after injury were withstood by an enlarged tendon of lower stress. These findings support progressive physical loading 4 wk after an Achilles tendon injury. T1-weighted OD constituted a marker of tendon mechanical recovery.
