From diagnosis to personalized 3D printed implant for patients with metastatic bone disease - an AI-assisted holistic system
A holistic patient-specific system is developed to assist orthopedic oncologist surgeons
to a) improve diagnosis on the need of a prophylactic surgery for patients with femoral tumors,
b) suggest the bone-tissue to be removed and c) determine an optimal design of a 3D printed
The center addresses the unmet needs of patients, doctors and clinical experts.
Current research is targeted at preventive medicine, diagnostics, therapy and disease management through advanced experimental technology, computer simulations of biomechanical processes, deep learning technology, simulation of physiological processes, advanced materials and novel medical devices.
By computer simulations, we aim at predicting fracture risk in osteoporotic geriatric patients, and risk of fracture in patients with metastatic bone disease.
