Decisions are made in the treatment of childhood hip diseases that may have long-term effects for the child. We need to better predict the future using new computer techniques.

 

The surgeons at Alder Hey Children's Hospital, are very keen to follow-up all of their patients and learn what happens to them in the long-term. ORCHID is helping them to do this. 

 

ORCHID is the outcomes research in children's hip disease. This study uses early x-rays to try to predict the long-term outcomes of Perthes' Disease and Slipped Capital Femoral Epiphysis. This uses machine learning, building on the technology of bone-finder. If you have been invited to participate, then please see the details below.
