Extremity Imaging

Extremity Imaging



Detecting extremity fractures that are not clearly visible on a planar X-ray is a common clinical challenge in orthopaedic surgery. Incorrect diagnosis of a suspected scaphoid fracture in the wrist can lead to delayed treatment or unnecessary immobilisation. A dedicated, portable desktop device to image the distal extremities could increase the diagnostic accuracy in a timely matter and reduce the need for costly CT exams and provide necessary tools to assess bone healing.

  • Point of care 3D extremity imaging from a compact desktop device

  • Reduced referrals to CT can save cost, radiation and time to diagnosis

  • Can be set up for example in an orthopaedic office, ski resort clinics, fracture clinics

  • Assessment of long-term conditions such as arthritis imaging
