3-D CT Scan
CurveBeam PedCAT Weight-bearing 3-D CT Scan, Digital X-Ray & Ultrasound
Step into Standing CT and get the most accurate diagnosis for your injury
Your doctor may determine your X-Ray does not provide enough information about your injury and may order a standing CT scan. CT scans provide a complete 3D picture of your bone alignment and joint spaces.
The American Orthopedic Foot & Ankle Society recommends standing (weight bearing) imaging, when possible, to get the most accurate assessment of the functional bony anatomy of the foot and ankle.
Deformities of the forefoot, midfoot, and hindfoot have been shown to be more visible in standing position.
Standing CT is perfect for:
- Preoperative planning
- Postoperative planning
- Diagnosis of fractures
- Evaluation of arthritic joints
- Evaluation of bunion deformity
- Evaluation of ankle instability
- Evaluation of foot alignment
- Sesamoid position and condition
