Annual Conference

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.
