BOCA RATON, Fla., May 22, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The Certified Foot and Ankle Specialists' clinics are home to one of the industry'smost advanced options for diagnosing and treating foot and ankle problems: the pedCAT™. This state-of-the-art, bilateral imaging system allows podiatrists to see 3-dimensional, weight bearing views of a patient's feet and ankles. Certified Foot and Ankle
"The pedCAT™ provides weight bearing, functional CT images in all planes, plus 3-dimensional reconstruction of the foot and ankle in 19 seconds for one foot and 42 seconds for both," said Dr. Kyle Kinmon, Founder of Certified Foot and Ankle Specialists. "We are now able to diagnose pathology, therefore expediting treatment plans that otherwise would have been missed with traditional X-Rays. This results in much better outcomes for patients and a faster return to activity!"
This compact machine was designed to automatically generate both standard X-Ray views and full CT scans. By capturing images of the entire lower extremities in just one scan, podiatrists can diagnose foot and ankle problems quickly and efficiently. These problems include diabetes-related complications, sprains, fractures, flat feet, bunions and arthritis. The pedCAT™ can also help doctors develop and implement a comprehensive care plan based on a patient's individual needs and diagnosed condition.
Manufactured by CurveBeam, the pedCAT™ captures bilateral, weight bearing CT scans of patients' entire feet and ankles, allowing greater insights into what might be the cause of any pain, swelling or bruising. Employing the latest CT technology, the pedCAT™ uses a cone shaped fan to capture every angle of the foot and/or ankle in one rotation with no repositioning.
