The research utilized publicly available data from the Osteoarthritis Initiative (OAI).

This exploratory analysis, combining the rich OAI dataset with novel methods for determining and visualizing cartilage thickness, reinforces known associations in knee OA while providing insights into the potential for data integration in knee OA phenotyping.

Joining Dr. Nelson were several other investigators from the CCCR Phenotyping and Precision Medicine Resource Core, including faculty and graduate students from multiple Departments across UNC, including TARC, Statistics and Operations Research, Epidemiology, Computer Science, and Radiology.
