Juha Tampio, Principal developer at Disior, was a co-author in a research paper accepted for publication in the Clinical Anatomy.
Juha, together with researchers from the Department of Hand Surgery at University of Helsinki and Helsinki University Hospital (Finland), applied mathematical modelling to study the anatomy of the distal radius to define the radiographic parameters in a 3D imaging modality, and to report their normal ranges in the uninjured radius.
The authors identified that the optimal location for determining the longitudinal axis was between 28.8 mm and 53.3 mm proximally from the articular surface, the mean radial inclination angle was 21.8°, and the mean volar tilt angle via the most distal tips of the volar and dorsal rims was 13.0°. The authors further indicate how computer-aided medical image processing offers an advanced tool to record 3D geometry and the radiographic parameters of the bony structures of the wrist.
We are proud of you, Juha. Congratulations to you and the entire research group on a great work done!
