 Evaluating Injuries Related to Use of High Heels With New CT Scanner

New CT scanner will perhaps be just what the doctor ordered for Fashion Victims in the UK.

Excessive use of high heels has posed serious problems to those in the fashion industry and others who just love wearing them causing many to run to podiatrists to deal with corns, Morton's neuroma and plantar fasciitis and many other conditions.

To make an evaluation of the extent of foot Injury, podiatrists and orthopedic surgeons had to rely on 2D-Xrays. It's a different story now, courtesy, CurveBeam of Warrington, PA that has brought a 3D load-bearing CT scan as a good way to evaluate foot injury.

Curve Beam's pedCAT scanner provides quick office-based foot and ankle scanning in a load bearing posture. Taking just a minute to scan, the image reconstruction is usually over in 2 minutes.

Researchers at the Institute of Orthopaedics and Musculo-Skeletal Sciences at University College London are now using this system to treat and manage shoe-related symptoms.
