15th International Workshop on Osteoarthritis Imaging 

Open Up: The Multifaceted Nature of OA Imaging

Inntel Hotel - Leuvehaven 80, 3011 EA

Rotterdam, Netherlands

Co-Chairs:

Jos Runhaar, PhD

Edwin Oei, MD, PhD

This workshop in the vibrant city of Rotterdam, The Netherlands, will bring together the world's leading stakeholders in the field of osteoarthritis imaging. During four days of plenary sessions mixed with ample opportunities for informal interactions, attendees will be updated about latest scientific results and have the chance to engage in discussions on current challenges and priorities for future research. Since there will be participation of fundamental and clinical researchers, clinicians and industry representatives working with different imaging modalities, this workshop will cover a wide variety of topics spanning the range from technical development, validation, clinical application, image analysis, as well as industry and patient perspectives.
