The module supports the radiologist in pre-diagnosis and efficient performance of radiological measurements. Measurements (such as the knee axis measurement) can be created automatically and then adjusted manually. The tool automatically calculates angles and determines malpositions. With these tools, the pre-diagnosis is created within a very short time.
The Radiology module contains the following sections:
- The Pelvic Overview section – with the included measurements for FAI (Femoro-Acetabular Impingement) – helps you to professionally measure and pre-discover hip joint morphology.
- The knee section helps you with the professional measurement of long leg images and pre-diagnosis of knee malpositions.
- With the torsion measurement you can measure the femoral and tibial torsion of your patient.
Benefits for the orthopaedist
The orthopaedic surgeon can precisely reproduce the radiological findings in mediCAD and verify all measurements.
On the basis of the radiological preliminary findings, mediCAD can automatically generate suggestions for operations in the knee area.
