Basic Biomechanics and Bioimaging
Dr. Ara Nazarian's work focuses on
basic biomechanics and
bioimaging of normal and pathologic cancellous and cortical bone, with emphasis on fracture prediction resultant from local and systemic skeletal pathologies.
Among his current projects are the
CT-based Structural Rigidity Analysis (CTRA) methodology, which he has worked on for the past eight years with Dr. Brian Snyder, and, in collaboration with Drs. Arun Ramappa and Joseph DeAngelis, a Major League Baseball-funded study that explores whether scapulo-thoracic motion (scapular motion relative respect to the thorax) significantly affects superior labral strain.
