A cooperation between UMC Utrecht, ImageBiopsy Lab, University of Oxford and Imperial College London resulted in new research results using artificial intelligence. The objective of the study was to analyze anatomical changes after KJD in patients treated in regular care using an automatic artificial intelligence-based measurement method, and to relate these changes with patient-reported knee pain and synovial fluid biomarker levels. The conclusion is that the automatic artificial intelligence-based radiographic measurements show improved joint structure in most patients after KJD in regular care. The joint space width increased significantly and was associated with synovial fluid biomarker level changes and even with improvements in pain as experienced by these patients.
