Welcome to the Orthopedics Engineering and 3D musculoskeletal Imaging Lab


logoOrthopedic Engineering lab at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia aims to deliver patient specific treatment that optimizes the treatment outcomes. Our research uses quantitative and analytical tools to study the underlying mechanism associated with development, progression, and treatment outcomes of the musculoskeletal conditions. Our lab uses multi-modal medical imaging, image processing, computer simulation, and mathematical and statistical modeling to identify subtle differences in the current stage and progression pattern of disease. In collaboration with Orthopedic surgeons, our research outcome recommend treatment options and predict possible outcomes.

The orthopedic engineering lab, headed by Dr Saba Pasha,  focuses on several projects related to pediatric orthopedics medical device design, software development, end to end image processing for diagnosis, and establishing quantitative guidelines for treatment outcome prediction using machine learning and artificial intelligence. This effort at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia brings together scientists and physicians from several national and international universities and hospitals. 

Our research is partially funded by national and international orthopedic associations such as Scoliosis Research Society, Pediatric Orthopedics of North America, and industrial partners.
