➢ Maximising autologous bone grafts yield from ilium: A CT based anatomical study:- A prospective observational study carried out at King’s college hospital. The primary objective of this study was to map out the area of the maximum bone yield from a human pelvis based on the 3D CT reconstructions, localise it with radiological mapping and validate it.We wanted to provide orthopaedic surgeons with the ideal location for a cortical window relative to the ASIS and PSIS in adults.

➢ Scapho-Trapezial-Trapezoid joint: A CT based anatomical study:- Reviewed CT scans of wrist joints of 113 eligible patients from our wrist database between 2009 and 2014 for our study. Reformatted multi-planar sequences were analysed. The ratio of the STm: STdin sagittal and coronal measurements was evaluated. Our assessment of the anatomical relationship of the STT joint with CT scan proves that although the area the STm joint is generally larger than the STd joint, there is no significant correlation on the whole.
