Hospital for Special Surgery Invests in Sectra Orthopedic 3-D Planning Software

January 18, 2018 – International medical imaging IT and cybersecurity company Sectra announces that Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS), one of the most renowned orthopedic hospitals in the U.S., has ordered Sectra’s 3D pre-operative planning solution. The software will provide HSS orthopaedic surgeons with advanced tools to enhance visualization of complex cases with the goal of improving patient outcomes.

“Sectra’s innovative 3-D solutions will enable us to make full use of the acquired images, resulting in cutting edge delivery of care to our orthopaedic patients,” says William M. Ricci, M.D., Chief of Orthopedic Trauma Service at HSS. “This 3D platform will improve the quality of pre-operative planning with potential for improved surgical outcomes.”

The 3D pre-operative planning solution includes tools that allow the surgeon to render standard computed tomography (CT) images into a three-dimensional interactive image that can be segmented, manipulated, mirrored, templated and 3-D printed. The software will integrate with the existing Sectra radiology picture archiving and communication system (PACS) at HSS to enable surgeons immediate access from anywhere in the hospital.

“This agreement adds software tools for advanced 3-D virtual fracture reduction and trauma planning as well as efficient tools for 3-D spine planning into the hands of all surgeons at HSS,” says Gustaf Schwang, General Manager Business Unit Orthopedics at Sectra. “It also includes collaborative development of software, intended to deepen both companies’ leadership position in our respective markets.”
