Abstract

The phantom study showed that the shape model method was more accurate for a coarse-scale analysis, whereas the shortening flow estimated fine scales better. Both the fine- and the coarse-scale curvature estimates distinguished between healthy and OA populations, and the coarse-scale curvature could even distinguish between healthy and borderline OA populations. The highly significant differences between populations demonstrate the potential of cartilage curvature as a disease marker for OA.
