X-ray Views

An update for the CurveBeam pedCAT weight-bearing CT (computed tomography) imaging system introduces a feature that could eliminate the need for plain radiographs of the foot and ankle. The pedCAT now automatically generates all standard x-ray views of the foot and ankle, in addition to full 3D volume and multiplanar slices. This means a practitioner can capture any x-ray series in a single scan. Because the x-ray views are computed from the pedCAT 3D data, they are anatomically accurate. pedCAT scans are ultra-low dose, with the same radiation exposure in one scan as in three to seven plain film images.
