Ali Guermazi, MD, PhD – Director of the Quantitative Imaging Center, Professor of Radiology, and Section Chief of Musculoskeletal Imaging at Boston University School of Medicine

Dr. Guermazi is a French board-certified radiologist. Prior to joining Boston University, he was Director of the Osteoporosis and Arthritis Research Group (OARG) at University of California at San Francisco (UCSF) and then Director of Clinical Research at Synarc, Inc. in San Francisco. Dr. Guermazi interest is musculoskeletal diseases, in particular note are his scientific contributions in the diagnosis and disease progression assessment of osteoarthritis using MRI. His work has focused on identifying structural risk factors for developing and worsening osteoarthritis. Dr. Guermazi had been involved in developing several original and widely accepted radiological methods to assess osteoarthritis disease risk and progression, including the WORMS and BLOKS for the knee, and fixed-flexion radiography for measuring joint space width. Dr. Guermazi has been involved as an MRI reader for the past 9 years in several large U.S. studies including the Health Aging and Body Composition (Health ABC) study, the Boston Osteoarthritis Knee study (BOKS), the Multi-center Osteoarthritis STudy (MOST), the Framingham study, Osteoarthritis Initiative (OAI), and other large NIH-funded studies, as well as several Pharmaceutical-sponsored clinical trials. He is author of over 260 peer-reviewed publications and Investigator on numerous research grants related to MRI reading for Osteoarthritis.
