The innovation generation is indeed here: A new research paper by Valtteri Lehtinen et al. accepted for publication
Valtteri Lehtinen, 5th year dental student working on his PhD and a data analyst at Disior, got his research paper accepted for publication in the Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.
Valtteri together with his research colleagues from the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Diseases at University of Helsinki and Helsinki University Hospital (Finland) studied the relationship between the amount of dislocation in zygomatico-orbital fractures, etiology and surgical treatment using a novel automated algorithm for measuring the dislocation of fracture.
With a sample of 115 subjects Valtteri et al. identified a significant association between mean amount of dislocation and operative treatment. The researchers indicate that the zygomatic fractures are more likely to be diagnosed as dislocated and to be operatively treated when mean dislocation exceeds 2mm being at the limits of human eye detection.
We could not be any prouder of you, Valtteri. Congratulations on the job well done to you and the entire research group!
Valtteri’s research is a great example how academic research can benefit from gaining awareness of novel technologies developed. We at Disior were delighted to provide an in-house developed algorithm for the research group and to see how the researchers were able to utilise it in analysing zygomatico-orbital fractures. Sometimes working with R&D companies may provide a possibility to innovate on what is possible with the research.
