Current imaging systems are limited by lack of precision. The imprecision relates to how the images are obtained (positional errors) and imaging errors (due to parallax and distortion). The level of imprecision before surgery for Joint Replacement makes the choice of implants to fit the arthritic joint unreliable. One consequence of this is the major accumulation of implant inventories in the Operating Room (OR). Another may be less than desirable implant match and a poorer functional result.
TePP on behalf of OASYS invites proposals from Indian innovators to develop software that acquires images of limb geometry, join size and arthritis grading in an automated way.
