End of January 2013, key users and RSA scientists from Sahlgrenska University Hospital (Sweden), University of Aberdeen (Scotland) and Aalborg University Hospital / Farsoe (Denmark) met in Gothenburg for the first international Adora RSA workshop.
The purpose of the workshop was to give room for hands-on exchange of operational experience with the system, to discuss practical and scientific ‘best practices’, and to set priorities for NRT’s continuous efforts to improve the system and add new functionalities.
Through a series of positive and very constructive discussions, the workshop identified both potential areas of joint research activities as well as specific areas of common interest for development that will further strengthen and improve RSA image acquisition procedures. The concluding main points of action from the workshop summarize the possibilities for collaboration and initiatives that will be executed in the period up to the next workshop, which is intended to take place beginning of 2014.
Adora RSA is a state-of-the art system designed and developed by NRT to achieve optimum precision and workflow in radiostereometric analysis (RSA) for the benefit of patients, researchers, and clinical staff.
At Sahlgrenska University Hospital, Adora RSA has been in operation since 2011 and was upgraded to Adora RSAd last Autumn, i.e. with Canon CXDI-50RF detectors enabling dynamic RSA studies where the patient moves during serial exposure.
