Brighton Radiology's state-of-the-art Orthopaedic Tomosynthesis machine has distinct advantages for both the operator and the patient.
- Multiple slices of anatomical region of interest imaged region
- New solution combining X-Ray and CT imaging technology (hybrid X-Ray/CT), where X-Ray would be inadequate yet CT is excessive relative to dose for the clinical question
- Evaluate spinal canal/IVF stenosis, spondylolysis, spondylolisthesis and fractures
- Using new metal artefact reduction technology: hardware screw loosening, bone/implant interface, fracture healing status adjacent to fixation plates can be evaluated
- Imaging can be performed recumbent, or at any angle up to 90 degrees to evaluate weight-bearing effects
- Very low dose — a fraction (1/10th to 1/15th) the dose of CT imaging
- Ideal for paediatrics — when more advanced imaging than general X-Ray is required
