Three-dimensional views of tendons, muscles, ligaments and nerves help medical staff to make a quick assessment of player injuries. It also helps to efficiently monitor the healing process to ensure that the player returns to the field at the right time, when fit. With the Sectra Visualization Table, such fully interactive, natural-size 3D views are rendered from MR or CT scans.
Viewing the images in 3D makes it easier for the player or coach or even physiotherapist to understand the injury which supports compliance to and understanding of treatment plans. The additional benefit of being able to interact with the 3D images substantially enhances the communication of injuries between, for example, medical staff, physiotherapists, players, and coaches/managers.
The 46” multi-touch screen allows users to interact with the 3D images simply by touching the screen in a very intuitive way. Users easily gather around the table and command is swiftly handed over between participants. This way, group discussions between medical teams is supported, opening up for new methods of collaboration between treating physicians and physiotherapists.
Sectra Visualization Table is the result of successfully combining applied research within medical technology and advanced computer science with industry knowledge. It has been developed in cooperation with Center for Medical Image Science and Visualization (CMIV), Visualization Center C, The Interactive Institute and Linköping University, Sweden.
Sectra Visualization Table is built on Sectra PACS, an image management system well established in the radiology market. Over 20 years of experience and more than 1,400 successful installations developed the technology at hand.
