What is a CT Scan

A CT scan is an advanced imaging technique that takes can see within the bones and create 3D images of the bones of the foot and ankle.

3D CT Image

Traditional X-rays are limited to views in 2D. CT images are thin “slices” through the part in order to be able to visualize the intricate parts of the bones and joints. These images can then be digitally assembled into a 3D image allowing to evaluate the foot and ankle with more accuracy. There is a significant amount of information a CT scan can deliver. With this information the exact relationship of the bones with each other leads to better and more accurate diagnosis.

The pedCAT™ is used to evaluate:

  • Fractures of the Foot Ankle
  • Arthritis of the Foot and Ankle
  • Pre-operative planning for Bone Surgery
  • Proper bone healing after Surgery or Fracture
  • Dislocations
  • Non-unions
  • Delayed Healing
  • Poor joint relationships
  • Angular deformities

Much more…
