We have also applied for few other grants; I will keep you informed about our progress.
- Additional Information:
- The paediatric orthopaedic imaging research program at BC Children's Hospital has advanced measurably following the POSNA research grant. Due to additional risks related to contrast administration for dGEMRIC imaging published following our application, we have been working to develop alternative methods for cartilage imaging in the Perthes hip, along with international collaborators. In addition, further research projects are underway in Perthes, SCFE, and OCD. The methods we are developing at our site will be utilized for further research in these and other conditions. We currently have a Post doc, 2 fellows, one master's student and 2 co-op students working on these research projects. I want to sincerely thank POSNA and Dr. Ken Kuo for making this possible.
