Diagnosis of primary and secondary coxarthrosis even today remains the privilege of medical experience and is based only on patient symptoms. We propose to use thermal analysis measurements as an objective method of diagnosing bone pathology and the degree of disease severity. Thermal analysis can be performed on few milligrams of bone tissue harvested by outpatient biopsy. For validation of thermal analysis, two more expensive techniques have been used: (i) X-Ray powder diffractometry (XRD) and (ii) scanning electron microscopy (SEM).

Abstract

Diagnosis of primary and secondary coxarthrosis even today remains the privilege of medical experience and is based only on patient symptoms. We propose to use thermal analysis measurements as an objective method of diagnosing bone pathology and the degree of disease severity. Thermal analysis can be performed on few milligrams of bone tissue harvested by outpatient biopsy. For validation of thermal analysis, two more expensive techniques have been used: (i) X-Ray powder diffractometry (XRD) and (ii) scanning electron microscopy (SEM).
