Acromioclavicular (AC) dislocation is a common injury, but treatments are varied and controversial.
To better understand why the joint is dislocating, the Orthopaedic clinical program of the Herston Biofabrication Institute is looking to conduct a study to observe anatomical differences between patients who suffer from recurrent A/C dislocation and patients with healthy shoulders.
As part of the research project, you will be involved in:
- carrying out computed tomography (CT) image segmentation
- measuring the scanned 3D anatomical structures.
The aim of the project is to perform a 3D anatomical morphology study to assess the differences between patients the healthy shoulders and those with recurring dislocation.
