There was a strong presence at the recent Australian & New Zealand Orthopaedic Research Society (ANZORS) Conference, held 30 Aug-1 Sept, with many MDRI members presenting papers, including Mark Taylor who was an invited speaker.
The conference, organised by MDRI members John Costi (as Secretary) and Diana Pham (MDRI student representative), received fantastic feedback from attendees.
The papers presented by MDRI members included;
- Moving towards population based computational modelling of total joint replacement, Mark Taylor.
- Biomechanical assessment of segmental bone defect repair using impaction bone grafting, John Costi, Richard Stanley, Boyin Ding and Lucian Solomon.
- High-resolution micro-CT examination of human bone: towards the entire organ, Egon Perilli, Ian Parkinson and Karen Reynolds.
- Effect of irradiation on allograft in a sheep model of femoral impaction grafting, Stuart Callary, John Field, John Costi, Richard Stanley, Roumen Stamenkov, Lucian Solomon, David Campbell, Margaret McGee and Donald Howie.
- A ex vivo method to assess the influence of lunate morphology on carpal kinematics, Dominic Thewlis, Francois Fraysse, Kevin Eng, Greg Bain, Richard Stanley, Boyin Ding and John Costi.
Egon Perilli was also invited to present a keynote lecture at the Asia-Pacific Advanced Skeletal Tissue & Cell Imaging Workshop at the Australian and New Zealand Bone and Mineral Society (ANZBMS) Conference, held 2-5 Sept. His presentation was titled “3D-imaging of human vertebrae with micro-CT: towards whole organ histomorphometry”.
