The International Workshop on Osteoarthritis Imaging started in 2007. It provides an interactive environment for those interested in osteoarthritis imaging to learn and network. Participants represent the diverse scope of the field and include professionals from specialties including medicine, surgery, radiology, medical physics and physiotherapists, as well as a broad array of professional backgrounds including academia, industry, government and regulatory agencies.

Conference and accommodations located at the
This workshop is designed for scientists and clinicians including physicists, engineers, computer scientists, radiologists, rheumatologists and orthopedic surgeons, students working on pulse sequences (rf coil design, image reconstruction, musculoskeletal and body imaging), MRI technologists, clinical investigators and anyone pursing imaging of OA.
For years, we have been trying to understand osteoarthritis from the imaging point of view. We now have a large amount of imaging and clinical data available on osteoarthritis and it is an optimal time to move forward and expand on our understanding of the disease.
This workshop is a unique opportunity for scientists, researchers, regulatories, interested members of pharma and others to meet and have an in depth and open minded discussion about the best way to advance the field of osteoarthritis imaging.
Five of the best young investigator presenters will be awarded monetarily by the Scientific Committee.
We will have the opportunity to deliver the IWOAI award to an individual who is considered a luminary in the field of osteoarthritis imaging.
