2017-ÖGO-Congress

The Annual Meeting of the Austrian Society of Orthopedics and Orthopedic Surgery provided the opportunity to discover cutting-edge strategies, analysis techniques and case study examples

The Annual Meeting of the Austrian Society of Orthopedics and Orthopedic Surgery  (Österreichische Gesellschaft für Orthopädie und orthopädische Chirurgie; ÖGO) took place from the 30th of November to the 1st of December in Vienna. The congress provided the opportunity to discover cutting-edge strategies, analysis techniques and case study examples in the broad field of orthopedics.The congress thus aimed to shed light on the most recent clinical and scientific advances, as well as the latest technology and image analysis tools developed in this specialty area of medicine.

Richard Ljuhar,Tobias Haftner and Prof. Stefan Nehrer presented a novel, reproducible method to assess knee osteoarthritis

We have the pleasure to announce that on Friday 1st December our CEO & Managing Director, Richard Ljuhar, along with our research associates, Tobias Haftner (Karl Landsteiner Medical University) and Prof. Stefan Nehrer (The Center for Regenerative Medicine and Orthopedics of Danube University Krems), had the fantastic opportunity to present their latest investigation into a novel software-based method for early detection of knee osteoarthritis.

The manuscript is currently being rewiewed and will be published soon

The presentation served to provide insight into the research-related aspects of their scientific manuscript entitled “Combining fractal- and entropy-based bone texture analysis for the prediction of Osteoarthritis: data from the Multicenter Osteoarthritis study (MOST)”. In this research, they were able to translate basic algorithmic research into the clinic. Successfully, the overall outcome was the establishment of a reproducible diagnosis method of knee osteoarthritis using a software-based assessment. The review of the manuscript is already being conducted, and the paper is likely to be published soon. We will keep you updated!
