The International Society of Osteoarthritis imaging (ISOAI) has been organized to coordinate, develop, promote, and foster the advancement of scientific research and clinical practice in osteoarthritis imaging. The Society will do this through innovative engagement and collaboration among its members consisting of the scientific community, numerous branches of medicine and medical industries.
As years continue to pass where upwards of billions of people worldwide suffer with this disease, a cure, timely and accurate diagnosis and quality of life management continue to remain a blurred line in the medical community. it has become apparent to industry, many branches of medicine, academia and regulatory agencies that imaging is critical in furthering the advancement in the science for OA as it is paramount in both the diagnosis and the management.
As a member you will be part of the only primarily dedicated OAimaging organization across the globe. The Society will provide members with digital forums, educational materials, access to the world's researchers and their work along with discounts to the IWOAI annual conference and the International Journal of Osteoarthritis Imaging coming in 2020.
The Society seeks to bring together a close fellowship among all branches of medicine, research, science and industry allowing for greater cooperation among the osteoarthritis community dedicated to the ultimate mission.
