A flowchart shows the progression from data acquisition to cartilage biochemical properties

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a joint disease that is characterized by breakdown of joint cartilage and underlying bone. Traumatic injuries, such as a tear of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) increases the risk of developing OA and provide a targeted way to investigate early pathophysiological changes in cartilage and intervene in a disease process. Our current […]

Various brain scans of a preterm infant

Diffusion MRI for modelling the normal neurodevelopment of the infant brain             Together with our collaborators at UQ Centre for Advanced Imaging, we are investigating the relationship between early MRI and clinical assessments, and clinical outcomes. Infants recruited in this study are born at less than 31 completed weeks of gestation. […]

CONSULT is a 3D experience that allows neurosurgeons to see the invisible, making brain surgery safer and more effective than ever before       Brain Surgery Remains A High-Risk Procedure Brain surgery is dangerous. The brain contains about a trillion axons – microscopic ‘wires’ that carry information. Surgeons need to cut through a subset […]

Musculoskeletal Segmentation In 2001, 6.1 million Australians (32%) had long-term arthritis or a musculoskeletal disorder with almost 1.2 million reporting an associated disability (Bhatia 2005). Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis affecting nearly 1.4 million Australians and a major cause of chronic pain and disability (Bhatia 2005). This chronic joint disease is […]
