February 25, 2015 — Planmed announced that effective Nov. 15, 2014, its Planmed Verity extremity computed tomography (CT) scanner is available on the Novation Merry-X-Ray capital equipment and diagnostics imaging distribution contract (XR0262), effective through July 31, 2017.

The Planmed Verity extremity scanner is designed to find subtle extremity fractures during the patient’s first visit to a clinic – the types of fractures that are often missed when using only 2-D radiographs. The scanner provides fast pre- and postoperative 3-D imaging at the point of care, enabling high resolution images with lower patient dose than full-body CTs. Planmed Verity also allows for weight-bearing imaging of the extremities.

The mobile scanner adapts to different patient needs with anatomy-specific imaging programs, movements and trays. Easily adjustable soft-surfaced gantry and motorized positioning trays support comfortable positions for various examination procedures. The adjustable user interface and all-in-one workflow are also designed to maximize the operator’s presence for the patient.

The Planmed Verity CT scanner was also awarded Novation’s Innovative Technology designation following a review by Novation’s Imaging Council, which indicated the Planmed Verity CT scanner offered incremental benefit over other products available on the market.
