October 17, 2019 – International medical imaging information technology (IT) and cybersecurity company Sectra is extending its pre-operative orthopedic planning solution for trauma cases with 3-D templates from one of the largest orthopedic companies, DePuy Synthes. Pre-operative planning for trauma cases using templating in combination with 3-D computed tomography (CT) images enables improved surgical outcomes.
Sectra’s 3-D pre-operative planning solution enables surgeons to visualize a fracture in a dynamic 3-D environment. With tools such as advanced bone segmentation, the surgeon can study and understand the fracture and determine a treatment plan prior to surgery. The ability to plan the surgical reduction and treatment pre-operatively minimizes the risk of surprises and stress during surgery, and consequently can shorten the time spent in the operating room.
Sectra’s 3D pre-operative planning solution is part of the company’s enterprise imaging solution, which allows for consolidation of image handling while ensuring clinical workflow efficiency. The enterprise imaging solution is modular and supports the most image-intense departments — radiology, pathology, cardiology and orthopedics. Being built on the same technical platform, customers can easily extend a departmental solution to create a comprehensive vendor-neutral archive (VNA) and enterprise image management solution without major investments or the replacement of existing components.
