Access from EThOS:
The National Institute of Health Osteoarthritis Initiative (NIH OAI) is a large cohort study which has enrolled over 5,000 subjects either at-risk of developing osteoarthritis (OA) or with evidence of early OA. Their aims are to discover potential imaging, biochemical and genetic biomarkers signifying OA onset or progression. All the subjects are being scanned on Siemens Trio 3.0 Tesla MR scanners. In the UK, the 3.0 Tesla scanners in use are manufactured by three principal companies: Philips Medical Systems, GE Healthcare and Siemens. In order to perform and interpret future research on Philips and GE scanners in relation to the future results of the NIH OAI, a comparison study is required.
