KOLOA, Hawaii — In this video from Orthopedics Today Hawaii, Adolph V. Lombardi Jr., MD, FACS, spoke about use of an artificial intelligence prediction model for knee arthroplasty.
The study examined the feasibility of an AI model for knee arthroplasty prediction. It used three-view radiographs in order to determine if patients experiencing knee pain are candidates for total knee joint arthroplasty, unicompartmental arthroplasty, or no knee surgery.
He stated that the results of the study showed the AI prediction model was extremely accurate. The model predicted whether patients had UKA and TKA 93% of the time, according to researchers.
