Fovia, CurveBeam Deliver Advanced Visualization Software for Orthopedic and Podiatric Markets

CurveBeam introduces CBCT weight bearing scanner with HDVR Connect

June 25, 2012 — Fovia Medical Inc. and CurveBeam announced that CurveBeam will enhance its product offerings by incorporating Fovia’s High Definition Volume Rendering (HDVR) into its Cone Beam CT (CBCT) product line, providing local and remote access to advanced visualization for orthopedic and podiatry specialists.

CurveBeam designs and manufactures specialty imaging equipment for the orthopedic and podiatric markets and recently announced U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval of its foot and ankle CBCT scanner, pedCAT. Employing true weight bearing imaging technology, pedCAT utilizes Fovia’s HDVR advanced visualization software to cost-effectively bring point-of-care advanced imaging into the private office.

Fovia’s CPU-based, HDVR Connect software delivers 3-D image quality and performance, giving specialists the tools needed to radically improve diagnosis, evaluation and treatment planning. The combination of Fovia's advanced visualization capabilities and CurveBeam's expertise in diagnostic imaging gives specialists an unprecedented ability to view and manipulate data "on-the-fly,” thereby obviating delays in patient care. Fovia’s completely customizable SDK enables CurveBeam to offer the gold standard in medical imaging while staying true to pedCAT’s groundbreaking design and compact footprint.

“Advanced 3-D visualization has become a critical component of medical care, clinical diagnosis and surgical planning,” said Arun Singh, president and CEO of CurveBeam. “We are proud to offer the precision of Fovia's HDVR Connect software combined with our CBCT technology to produce undistorted images of the foot and ankle region under weight bearing conditions.  Our foot and ankle specialty clients using HDVR, with its clarity, flexibility and ease-of-use, will be able to deliver enhanced quality care and improved surgical outcomes to their patients.”
