Centre for Mobility and Joint Health: State-of-the-Art Imaging and Image Viewing With ResolutionMD

Posted by PureWeb on Thu, Aug 30, 2018

In 2016, the University of Calgary’s McCaig Institute for Bone and Joint Health opened the Centre for Mobility and Joint Health (the MoJo) to provide researchers with access to state-of-the-art imaging, motion assessment and diagnostic equipment. Using this equipment, the MoJo researchers can assess bone and joint health on every level to develop new technologies focused on the prevention, early diagnosis and treatment of bone and joint conditions. Included in these advanced imaging tools is ResolutionMD, which serves as a secure, diagnostic quality image viewing platform for researchers located anywhere on campus or in Canada supporting fast, efficient and effective collaboration.
