Osteoarthritis

View this topic in
Osteoarthritis (OA) also known as degenerative arthritis or degenerative joint disease, is a group of mechanical abnormalities involving degradation of joints, including articular cartilage and subchondral bone. Symptoms may include joint pain, tenderness, stiffness, locking, and sometimes an effusion. (Wikipedia.org)

Automated segmentation of computed tomography images

Justin Senseney; Paul F. Hemler; Matthew J. McAuliffe 2009 22nd IEEE International Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems, 2009

An image analysis, visualization, and segmentation system has been developed to assist researchers participating in a world-wide imaging study led by the National Institute on Aging to determine risk factors contributing to chronic osteoarthritis. The system provides a sophisticated but simple to use interface that directs the segmentation of muscle, fat, and other tissues of interest in thigh and abdomen ...


Parametric maps of the knee cartilage

Mokhtar Mars; Zeineb Tbini; Ag. M. Bouaziz; M. F. Ladeb International Image Processing, Applications and Systems Conference, 2014

Because cartilage does not regenerate and cartilage loss is irreversible, it is important to detect cartilage damage in early stage, so that preventive treatment can be used to stop the progression. The parametric magnetic resonance imaging techniques including T1, T2 and T2* maps provide information about the damages to the extracellular matrix of articular cartilage and the increase of water ...


Flexible non cartilage seeds for osteoarthritic magnetic resoance image of knee: Data from the osteoarthritis initiative

Hong-Seng; Khairil Amir Sayuti; Noor Hasmiza Harun; Ahmad Helmy Abdul Karim 2016 IEEE EMBS Conference on Biomedical Engineering and Sciences (IECBES), 2016

Difficulties in analyzing diseased knee cartilage is attributed to large anatomical variation caused by osteoarthritic features. Using expert initialization as crucial source of information, interactive method is very useful in osteoarthritic cartilage segmentation. However, high level of expert intervention remains an issue for existing interactive segmentation model. Therefore, a flexible seeds labelling method has been proposed to automatically cover non-cartilage ...


Exploration of Imaging Method of Degenerate Articular Cartilage Based on EPIC Micro-CT

Yan Yan; Xiaofei Li; Xiran Cai; Haijun Niu 2012 International Conference on Biomedical Engineering and Biotechnology, 2012

This study explored appropriate method for imaging and detecting early degenerate articular cartilage based on contrast-enhanced Micro-CT. 12 normal articular cartilage samples were prepared from bovine knee. They were immersed in PBS dilutions with specified concentration (20%, 30% and 40% the ionic Meglumine diatrizoate) at 37 °C, and were scanned by the Micro-CT every two hours respectively. Another 6 cartilage ...


Fully automatic 3-D segmentation of knee bone compartments by iterative local branch-and-mincut on MR images from osteoarthritis initiative (OAI)

Sang Hyun Park; Soochahn Lee; Hackjoon Shim; Il Dong Yun; Sang Uk Lee; Kyoung Ho Lee; Heung Sik Kang; Joon Koo Han 2009 16th IEEE International Conference on Image Processing (ICIP), 2009

In this paper, we propose a fully automatic method to segment bone compartments in magnetic resonance (MR) images of knee joints gathered from a public database for research on knee osteoarthritis (OA), the osteoarthritis initiative (OAI). Considering the fixed scanning parameters which include position and flexion of the knee joint, the proposed method efficiently utilizes both shape and intensity priors ...

    Cartilage injuries in children and adolescents are increasingly observed, with roughly 20% of knee injuries in adolescents requiring surgery. In the US alone, costs of osteoarthritis (OA) are in excess of $65 billion per year (both medical costs and lost wages). Comorbidities are common with OA and are also costly to manage. Articular cartilage's low friction and high capacity to bear load makes it critical in the movement of one bone against another, and its lack of a sustained natural healing response has necessitated a plethora of therapies. Tissue engineering is an emerging technology at the threshold of translation to clinical use. Replacement cartilage can be constructed in the laboratory to recapitulate the functional requirements of native tissues. This book outlines the biomechanical and biochemical characteristics of articular cartilage in both normal and pathological states, through development and aging. It also provides a historical perspective of past and current cartil ge treatments and previous tissue engineering efforts. Methods and standards for evaluating the function of engineered tissues are discussed, and current cartilage products are presented with an analysis on the United States Food and Drug Administration regulatory pathways that products must follow to market. This book was written to serve as a reference for researchers seeking to learn about articular cartilage, for undergraduate and graduate level courses, and as a compendium of articular cartilage tissue engineering design criteria.
