Imaging Analytics: Optimizing Time Efficiencies

ORTHOWORLD is pleased to announce the inclusion of ImageIQ in the educational session lineup for OMTEC 2012.

Prior to its formation as a stand-alone company, ImageIQ operated for over a decade as a core service within the Cleveland Clinic. Today, ImageIQ offers a unique solution for biotechnology and medical device organizations who desire to reduce costs, accelerate timelines and improve data quality. Research, product development, regulatory and marketing programs benefit from ImageIQ’s combined software engineering, biomedical and imaging expertise, all of which enable custom-tailored imaging, analysis and visualization algorithms and protocols to meet the specific needs of preclinical and clinical biomedical R&D and product development on a project-, study- or application-specific basis.

 

Exhibits 1 through 3 serve as examples of what can be measured and the impact this can have on your process/initiative.

 

Exhibit 1. Multi-modality Validation for Bone-Ingrowth: utilizing Micro-CT can reduce the need for histology by up to 75%. 3D Micro-CT (bottom) and 2D histological (top) approaches were employed to quantitatively analyze bone in-growth within a ceramic biomaterial implanted into a femur. Images on right show pseudo-colored quantitative visualizations of segmented scaffold (green) and new bone (blue, top; red, bottom) extracted by automated image analysis algorithms.

Exhibit 2. Bone Tumor Healing: imaging analytics replaces expensive and time-consuming qualitative analysis with robust quantification of bone defects across multiple time points. Graft remodeling and new bone formation metrics were extracted from the site of a femoral osteonecrotic defect in a longitudinal clinical study utilizing CT imaging and custom-tailored quantitative image analysis and visualization algorithms.

Exhibit 3. ACL Screw Analysis: 3D quantitative imaging analytics deliver objective measurements of key implant efficacy parameters to reinforce and significantly improve the efficiency of radiographic interpretation by trained clinicians. ACL fixation screw resorption, tibial tunnel morphometrics and tunnel region-of-interest new bone growth and autograft resorption were quantitatively measured and evaluated across multiple time-points using customized CT volumetric registration and analysis.
