Featured Recent CT Imaging in OA Research
What is OCTA Research?
We are an international group of researchers working with, developing, and promoting computed tomography (CT) imaging in osteoarthritis (OA) research.
What imaging techniques do we use?
OCTA Research members use a range of multiscale x-ray based tomographic imaging.
This includes techniques such as:
› Clinical CT & Dual Energy CT (DECT)
› Quantitative CT (QCT)
› Peripheral Quantitative CT (pQCT)
› High Resolution pQCT (HR-pQCT)
› Cone Beam CT (CBCT)
› Weightbearing & Kinematic CT
› microCT & Synchrotron Tomography
What are the goals of OCTA Research?
As well as promoting CT in OA research, we have priorities that we think will have the most impact:
1. Developing standard CT imaging protocols of OA
2. Defining OA with CT imaging
3. Developing the role of CT in OA clinical trials
