    Established in 1972, AORI ( is a non-profit research foundation
    renown for its clinically-oriented research related to hip and knee
    replacements. AORI conducts both prospective and retrospective studies to
    better understand the factors that influence outcome after joint
    replacement. The Institute maintains a clinical database of over 14,000
    joint replacement procedures. Current research topics include
    three-dimensional imaging of joint replacement patients using computed
    tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging; understanding the
    factors associated with bone resorption (osteolysis) around artificial
    implants; and evaluating bone graft substitutes for the treatment of
    osteolysis. AORI's facilities are located 10 miles outside Washington, DC,
    in Alexandria, VA. We seek to share our research findings with the medical
    community through peer-reviewed publications and scientific meetings.
    Opportunities for co-authorship are available to AORI staff members for work
    stemming from their research.
