Current Projects at CAMRIS

At CAMRIS, our research focus is largely musculoskeletal. Our imaging infrastructure has enabled high impact studies on bone quality in rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and in osteoporosis; on muscle quality in knee osteoarthritis and frailty; and on cartilage and ligament injuries in osteoarthritis. The multidisciplinary nature of our projects empowers our team to execute projects with a high degree of rigour. Below you will find a list of our current projects.
