The Centers for Disease Control calls antibiotic (or antimicrobial) resistance “one of the biggest public health challenges of our time,” responsible for 2.5 million infections and more than 35,000 human deaths in the U.S. each year.

Recent studies have shown something called epiphyseal cartilage necrosis—lesions caused by lack of blood flow to joints—is the radiographically invisible precursor to juvenile osteochondritis dissecans.

The challenge arises from the unpredictability of swine influenza infections becoming zoonotic and, in some instances, turning into a human pandemic like the 2009 H1N1 influenza outbreak.

About 250,000 Americans require a hip replacement each year, 10 percent of which are caused by a hip disorder that can affect children or adults called osteonecrosis of the femoral head.

The analyses make use of radiomics, an emerging method that uses data-characterization algorithms to extract features from medical imaging like CT. This is believed to be the first such liver-mass study in dogs.
