Statistical Shape Modeling research

PhD student and Orthopaedic surgery resident Michiel van Buuren gave an oral presentation at OARSI 2023 in Denver and at the annual conference of the Dutch Orthopaedic Society (NOV).

He studied the association between statistical shape variations of the hip and the development of radiographic hip osteoarthritis within 8 years follow-up.  In his individual participant data meta-analysis of World COACH data, Michiel found that baseline hip shape wa sassociated with the development of incident radiographic hip osteoarthritis.
