BENEFITS OF CT ASSISTED SURGERY MODELING
This advanced technology combined with our low-dose, high-resolution 128-slice CT scan enables the system to model your unique anatomy and simulate your surgery. This enables Medical engineers to suggest accurate implant sizing, placement, and alignment.
REDUCING SURGICAL STEPS
When your doctor uses this system, he can potentially reduce the number of steps in your surgery, the amount of fluoroscopy (X-ray imaging) required, and your time in surgery. As a patient, you will benefit from accurate implant sizing and alignment.
