CABA provides diagnostic and monitoring capability that enhances early diagnosis, facilitate tailored/ personalized management and enhance monitoring that is currently not available to clinicians.
Around 250 million people are living with knee Osteoarthritis (OA) worldwide. At present diagnosis and management of knee osteoarthritis s is dependent on self-reported symptoms. They lack objectivity and are susceptible to influence of a range of factors including psychological status, socioeconomic status, secondary gain and other factors that whilst important don’t provide an accurate assessment of the disease state.
CABA-Cartilage and Bone assessment tool can assist medical practitioners for the diagnosis and monitoring of knee osteoarthritis. To this end, CABA provides accessibility to measure quantitative change in thickness & volume of articular cartilage as well as bone curvature, bone marrow lesion volume and attrition of bone as morphological features with regards to ageing. In order to measure these changes the software utilizes magnetic resonance images acquired using a MR pulse sequence suitable for anatomical imaging at any MRI scanner (without the restriction of field strength and vendor). Post-processing of acquired MR images is performed using computational algorithms developed by utilizing sophisticated image processing algorithms specifically designed for each module available in CABA. All the modules of CABA provide an automated and quantitative measurement with respect to age that are supported by the reference values specified based on age group and demographic data.
CABA provides diagnostic and monitoring capability that enhances early diagnosis, facilitate tailored/ personalized management and enhance monitoring that is currently not available to clinicians.CABA has several added innovative advancements in the technology such as:
Osteoarthritis Care (OA-Care) is mobile based self-assessment tools that provide the users an opportunity to monitor and maintain health of their knee joints. OA-Care app is designed by considering experts opinion and outcomes based on questionnaires reported to assess knee joint health conditions.
The management of knee Osteoarthritis is not optimal and standard quality indicators suggest that the majority of persons with disease do not receive appropriate care. Over half of the persons affected with OA are unaware of the diagnosis. There’s no cure for knee OA, but there are a lot of treatment options you can try. Osteoarthritis Care (OA-Care) is mobile based self-assessment tools that provide the users an opportunity to monitor and maintain health of their knee joints. Based on the assessment results by OA-Care, one can change their daily routine and active physical exercise to delay the progression of knee osteoarthritis. OA-Care provide provides advises on the physical activities, access to videos, changing life style suggestions, diet plan, advise on natural remedies and suggestions to seek medical doctor’s advice.
