IB Lab BMAx™ – Bone Micro Architecture Analysis

Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis and affects disproportionately the knee. OA is not just a joint disease but also involves progressive changes in the subchondral/subarticular bone area of the tibia.

IB Lab BMAxTM  combines a set of advanced bone micro architecture (BMA) algorithms to offer a detailed assessment of the trabecular structure of the bone. The application combines fractal algorithms to ensure that a comprehensive and reliable analysis. No expensive additional image modality is needed – use existing x-rays to find out what is really going on inside the bone and how the quality is affected.
