Our state-of-the-art Orthopaedic Tomosynthesis machine stands at the forefront of diagnostic imaging technology, offering a plethora of advantages for both medical professionals and patients.
Here are some of the remarkable features and benefits of this cutting-edge system:
- Multi-Slice Imaging: Our Orthopaedic Tomosynthesis machine has the remarkable capability to capture multiple slices of the anatomical region of interest. This innovative approach allows for a more comprehensive and detailed assessment of the targeted area, providing vital insights for accurate diagnoses.
- Hybrid X-Ray/CT Technology: Combining the power of X-Ray and CT imaging, our system offers a hybrid solution for cases where traditional X-Ray proves insufficient and full CT imaging is excessive in terms of radiation dose. This hybrid approach ensures that the clinical question is addressed optimally.
- Evaluation of Complex Conditions: The Orthopaedic Tomosynthesis machine is exceptionally suited for evaluating intricate spinal conditions such as spinal canal/IVF stenosis, spondylolysis, spondylolisthesis and fractures. It provides the level of detail necessary to make precise diagnoses and informed treatment decisions.
- Advanced Metal Artefact Reduction: Leveraging state-of-the-art metal artefact reduction technology, our machine enables the evaluation of various factors, including hardware screw loosening, bone/implant interface and the healing status of fractures adjacent to fixation plates. This technology contributes to more accurate assessments.
- Customised Imaging Angles: Whether imaging needs to be performed in a recumbent position or at any angle up to 90 degrees, our Orthopaedic Tomosynthesis machine delivers the flexibility required to assess the effects of weight-bearing, ensuring a comprehensive evaluation.
- Ultra-Low Dose: Safety is paramount and our machine excels in this regard by delivering very low doses of radiation. In fact, it typically requires only a fraction (approximately 1/10th to 1/15th) of the radiation dose associated with traditional CT imaging. This significantly minimises patient exposure to radiation.
- Paediatric-Friendly: When advanced imaging beyond general X-Ray is necessary, our machine proves to be an ideal choice for paediatric patients. It strikes a balance between providing detailed images and minimising radiation exposure, making it a safe and effective option for children.
