We are organizing an image analysis challenge for prediction of incident symptomatic radiographic knee osteoarthritis (KNOAP2020). The challenge is already open and we have released the test set that includes knee X-ray and MR images. The planned submission deadline for predictions is November 30, 2020. The results of the challenge will be presented in the IWOAI 2021 meeting (Rotterdam, The Netherlands, June 30 to July 3, 2021).
Please check the challenge website for more details.
Stay safe and kind regards,
Jukka Hirvasniemi, on behalf of the organizers of the KNOAP2020 challenge
The International Workshop on Osteoarthritis Imaging started in 2007. It provides an interactive environment for those interested in osteoarthritis imaging to learn and network. Participants represent the diverse scope of the field and include professionals from specialties including medicine, surgery, radiology, medical physics and physiotherapists, as well as a broad array of professional backgrounds including academia, industry, government and regulatory agencies.
Imaging is critical in both the diagnosis and management of osteoarthritis. Clinical and epidemiological studies characteristically utilize imaging-derived inclusion/exclusion criteria as well imaging based outcome measures. This Workshop was established to offer opportunities for osteoarthritis investigators to discuss issues related to imaging of osteoarthritis. The topics of discussion may include new lessons learned about osteoarthritis pathophysiology by using imaging modalities, recent advances in imaging techniques and appropriate analytic methods of imaging derived data.
Rotterdam, The Netherlands
June 30 - July 3
This workshop is designed for scientists and clinicians including physicists, engineers, computer scientists, radiologists, rheumatologists and orthopedic surgeons, students working on pulse sequences (rf coil design, image reconstruction, musculoskeletal and body imaging), MRI technologists, clinical investigators and anyone pursing imaging of OA
