AAOS/ORS sponsor imaging/CAS symposium

A decade ago, computer-assisted surgery (CAS) was in its infancy. Today, navigation systems, musculoskeletal imaging and tracking systems, and robotic testing systems are transforming orthopaedic surgery and resulting in improved outcomes for patients.

Recognizing these advances, the AAOS and the Orthopaedic Research Society (ORS) will be sponsoring a symposium on “Advanced imaging and computer-assisted surgery of the knee and hip,” May 15–17, in Providence, R.I. An invited audience of orthopaedic surgeons, young investigators, noted researchers, and government and industry representatives will discuss basic science issues, technology integration, intraoperative imaging, and novel approaches to orthopaedic surgery of the knee and hip.

Symposium co-chairs Martha L. Gray, PhD, of the ORS, and AAOS fellow Andrew D. Pearle, MD, have assembled a stellar cast of presenters who will address the issue from multiple perspectives. Sessions will cover morphology, intraoperative imaging, image processing, and macromolecular imaging, as well as applications in the treatment of knee degeneration, malalignment and ligamentous injury, chondral lesions, and hip topology.
