Project description
The aim of this project is to study possibility to utilize computational modeling and clinical imaging data with subject information to make personalized prediction for the onset and progression of knee osteoarthritis years before. Furthermore, the project is aiming to evaluate how prevention of knee osteoarthritis influences on economic and societal benefits. In future, outcomes of the project may be utilized in developing first clinical tool for preventing knee osteoarthritis. This kind of a tool would enable to decrease amount of total knee joint replacement surgeries and, thus, it would enable substantial economic savings to societies.
