RSAcore is established early 2012 as a centre of excellence in (Model-Based) RSA within the Department of Orthopaedics at the Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC). As early as 1993 physicians and biomechanical engineers within the LUMC have been working with Roentgen Stereophotogrammetric Analysis (RSA). In those days migration of endo-prostheses was calculated by measuring the markers in the calibration box, bones and prostheses by hand. These days, using the Model-Based RSA software developed within the LUMC, migration can be calculated almost automatically. A huge innovation has been the possibility to use a digital prosthesis model in the software to determine the 3-D position of the prosthesis. This enables us to study the migration of prostheses, without having to fit them with markers.
The people working at RSAcore are specialized in clinical RSA research and the development of innovative RSA technology. We are happy to assist you the best we can.
