Traumacad Ver 2.0 to be Featured at Limb Deformity Course

August 31, 2007 — Orthocrat Ltd., a leader in digital imaging software for orthopedic surgeons, has been invited to demonstrate its TraumaCad 2.0 digital surgical planning and templating solution at the prestigious Baltimore Limb Deformity Course, Sept. 1-5 at the Marriott Waterfront Hotel in Baltimore.
Orthocrat will provide hands-on computer-lab demonstrations of its forthcoming TraumaCad 2.0 enhancements during course presentations and individually for physicians in attendance.
Version 2.0 includes the Paley Growth Calculator module, which predicts the growth potential of bones in pediatric patients with immature skeletons. This helps physicians determine the ideal timing for surgical interventions to treat deformities.
TraumaCad 2.0 includes the following features:
-A dedicated "limb alignment" wizard guides the surgeon through marking anatomic landmarks to define a deformed limb’s mechanical axis, measure its joint angles and compare these measurements to the normal range and the expected post-operative result.
-A comprehensive trauma module enables surgeons to simulate bone fragment manipulation. Users can virtually move and rotate bone fragments according to Center of Rotation of Angulation principles that surgeons will learn during the deformity course.
-The software visualizes surgical procedures before surgeons perform them. TraumaCad 2.0 allows for the constant tracking of axes and angles in relationship to corrected anatomic landmarks to demonstrate the landmarks’ positions in real time during surgery.
TraumaCad seamlessly integrates with PACS to give orthopedic surgeons user-friendly access to advanced display protocols and flexible review functionalities across the enterprise. TraumaCad’s orthopedic planning tools are available anywhere on the PACS network, and surgical plans are available on demand throughout the enterprise. Its true thin-client, Web-based architecture enables downloads from a central server and delivers a consistent, PACS-integrated working environment regardless of the user’s location.
