Product Of The Month
pedCAT Premium is a Cone Beam CT Scanner which allows for weight bearing/standing scans of the foot & ankle giving the physicians the information they need to assess the biomechanical spatial relationships and alignment of the lower extremities in their functional position in 3D which have improved the understanding of deformities that are not easily identified on radiographs and are increasingly being used by orthopedic surgeons for diagnostic and preoperative planning purposes.

Tip OF THE MONTH
Cone Beam CT employs a wide, cone shaped beam. One rotation captures the region of interest. CurveBeam systems have a fixed tube current (mA) of 5, which is well below ultra-low-dose settings of MDCT. Image quality of high contrast, hard tissue features is equivalent to MDCT. The flat panel detector is positioned closer to the anatomy being imaged, which means less X-Ray dose is required to capture similar signal strength, as compared to MDCT.
World Hemophilia Day (April 17, 2022) was started in 1989 by the World Federation of Hemophilia to raise awareness and bringing hemophilia and other inherited bleeding disorders to the attention of policymakers.
