Biweekly Meeting of Cleveland Clinic Core Team
Date: August 14, 2018
Time: 12:00 PM EST
Means: In person meeting
- Ahmet Erdemir
- Snehal Chokhandre
- Erica Neumann
- Ariel Schwartz
- Discuss Open Knee(s) progress.
- Discuss Knee Hub progress.
- Open Knee(s)
- Snehal attended the ASB 2018 conference. The cartilage characterization poster was well received.
- Snehal is working on data analysis for the cartilage manuscript and will discuss how to present preconditioning and ramp load-unload data with Ahmet.
- Ahmet suggested stress testing and improving generation one model first before dissemination (This model is converted to be compatible with FEBio version 2.7).
- Snehal received test notes from Tara for additional oks specimens. Snehal will go over all the MRIs and also update specimen pages with relevant notes.
- Snehal will contact Ceylan for segmentation quality check.
- Snehal met with Mingrui to discuss segmentation using deep learning methods. The Li lab is working on using existing algorithms to segment cartilage for specimens from the Osteoarthritis initiative (OAI). Once the results are satisfactory, open knees segmentation can serve as test data. Snehal and Mingrui may also work on a pilot grant submission to streamline the collaborative efforts (focus will be mostly on segmentation of bones and cartilage using existing data and improving MRI quality for ligament segmentation).
- Rodrigo gave another presentation to wrap up his work in the lab.
- The team also discussed the goals for the rest of the grant year. The goals are to complete and submit the cartilage characterization and joint testing data manuscripts (both tibiofemoral and patellofemoral), disseminate all segmentation and geometries (after quality checks), build, run and disseminate fully assembled models for all specimens (need not be fully running).
- Knee Hub
- Ahmet reviewed the phase one specifications written by Ariel and made necessary changes. The document is ready to be submitted.
- Ariel will work on python scripts to customize the template model. This will also be very helpful for the Open Knee(s) model generation.
