BMAx calculates the bone microarchitecture non-invasive using knee X-Ray image. BMA evaluates the trabecular structure of the bone. This information of the trabecular structure provides important information of osteoarthritis. By combining those two independent software solutions (JSx and BMA) provides an as yet unprecedented information about the condition of the bone and joint diseases.
BMAx technology uses fractal mathematics to assess and evaluate very complex pixel textures.
To calculate the Bone Structure Value (BSV) single or multiple regions of interests (ROIs) are placed inside the X-ray image depending on the anatomical region. This calculation process is fully automatic. It analyses conventional digital X-ray images to provide additional information for osteoporosis or osteoarthritis.
