IAG to Present Three Abstracts at the American College of Rheumatology Annual Meeting, November 8 – 13 in Atlanta, Georgia.  

London, England; October 25, 2019. Image Analysis Group (IAG), unique clinical development partner to Life Sciences companies, today announced that it will present three abstracts at the American College of Rheumatology’s Annual Meeting, November 8 – November 13, Atlanta, Georgia, United States. In addition, IAG’s Scientific Advisory Board Member, Dr. John Carrino, has been invited to host a ‘Meet the Professor’ session to discuss the current clinical practice based on published guidelines for the use of MRI in diagnosis of Spondylarthritis

The abstracts reflect data from IAG’s latest clinical research and studies, with each bringing a new methodology for the assessment of images in psoriatic arthritis, lupus nephritis and osteoarthritis.
The details of the abstracts are as follows.


Title: 
Perfusion in Bone Marrow Lesions Assessed on Dynamic Contrast-Enhanced MRI and Its Association with Pain in Knee Osteoarthritis: A Cross-sectional Study
Presentation Type: Oral
Presenter: Prof. Mikael Boesen
Session Title: 3S106: Osteoarthritis – Clinical I: Innovations (909–914)
Date/Time: Sunday, November 10, 16:30-18:00

Description: This abstract is linking quantitative perfusion on MRI and the pain in knee osteopathists cross-sectional study. It expands on our earlier publication ‘MR Imaging of Joint Infection and Inflammation with Emphasis on Dynamic Contrast Enhanced MR Imaging’, 2018 Oct, by Boesen M, Kubassova O, Sudoł-Szopińska I, Maas M, Hansen P, Nybing JD, Oei EH, Hemke R, Guermazi A

Title: Novel Computer Assisted Methodology for Quantitative Assessment of MRI Treatment Responses to Apremilast in Patients with Psoriatic Arthritis
Presentation Type: Poster
Presenter: Dr. Olga Kubassova
Session Title: Imaging Of Rheumatic Diseases Poster II
Date/Time: Monday, November 11; 09:00-11:00
Description: The abstract presents the data from the assessment of treatment efficacy in the patient cohort treated with Apremilast using state-of-the-art and novel AI-driven methodologies. Together with Prof. Paul Bird (PI for the study), we are exploring how PSAMRIS can be complimented  with quantitative assessment of inflammation.

 

Title: Development of a Multi-Modality Imaging Approach to Evaluate Lupus Nephritis
Presentation Type: Oral
Presenter: Dr. Peter E. Lipsky
Session Title: 4M120: SLE – Clinical IV: Lupus Nephritis (1914–1919)
Date/Time: Monday, November 11; 16:30-18:00
Description: This is the first attempt to understand lupus nephritis through a multi-modal approach, combining imaging and non-imaging tests.

The details of Dr. John Carrino’s ‘Meet the Professor’ section are as follows:


Title: 
5T010 MTP: 056 – Musculoskeletal Radiology: Pearls for the Rheumatologists
Presentation Type: Clinical Practice: Meet the Professor
Presenter: Dr. John Carrino, MD, M.P.H
Session Title: Musculoskeletal Radiology: Pearls for the Rheumatologist
Date/Time: Tuesday, November 12, 07:45 – 09:15
Description: Session describes the current clinical practice based on published guidelines for the use of MRI in diagnosis of Spondylarthritis. Via a case-based approach, Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), Ultrasound (US) and Computerized Tomography (CT) images will be reviewed to provide correlation with plain radiographs and to demonstrate the utility these modalities have in the evaluation of joint-based disease.
