Sectra Shows Latest Ortho PACS and Pre-Operative Planning Tools

February 1, 2012 — The IT and medical technology company Sectra will demonstrate the latest version of its pre-operative planning system and visualization table at the American Association of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) February 2012 meeting in San Francisco, Cali.

New tools for fast and accurate pre-operative planning

Sectra highlights its latest orthopaedic PACS with a range of new features enabling surgeons to improve surgical outcomes.

  • Support for fine-tuning of hip cup and stem placement.
  • New functionality for improved validation of calibration result on low contrast images.
  • Intelligent selection of templates based on the user’s most commonly used implant and autolock of measurement points on reposition areas for easier simulations.

Visualization table with 3-D bone segmentation

Sectra will also showcase Sectra Visualization Table, a multi touch screen that gives the orthopaedic surgeon natural-size 3-D views of patient anatomy, rendered from computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance (MR) images. Surgeons can manipulate the virtual body with their hands, as in a real surgical setting. They can local­ize vessels and muscles and other vital anatomy to com­mence the procedure with a well-aligned strategy and awareness of complicating factors. This saves time, improves surgical outcomes and increases patient safety.
