NIR Spectroscopy Enables Accurate Evaluation of Osteoarthritis

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
An arthroscopic probe, developed at the University of Eastern Finland, could be used to quantitatively assess the health of joint tissues, improving physicians’ ability to detect initial signs of post-traumatic osteoarthritis (PTOA). The surgical instrument utilizes NIR spectroscopy (NIRS) to determine the rigidity of the cartilage and the mineral content of the cartilage bone, enabling more accurate detection of cartilage and bone loss. It also assesses the health of the surrounding tissue. The availability of comprehensive information on the condition of joint tissues through...Read full article
