Sectra Visualization Table is a cutting-edge pre-operative planning tool for the complex orthopaedic cases. Real-size, interactive 3D views of the patient, give the orthopaedic surgeon a unique possibility to become familiar with the specific anatomy prior to surgery. Without opening the patient, the surgical team can localize vessels, muscles and skeletal tissue and study their three-dimensional relation and plan the surgery. The touch interface allows the surgeon to interact with the virtual body with the hands, as in the real surgical setting, which supports his or her tactile memory. This increases quality in surgery and reduces operation and rehabilitation time as unplanned issues can be avoided.
The large monitor and intuitive touch interface of the Sectra Visualization Table support group discussion between medical teams, providing opportunity for new methods of collaboration between doctors. It is also an efficient tool for communication with patients and can be used for case acceptance of a particular procedure or simply for education and consultation by showing the patient´s own 3D scan in real-size.
Sectra Visualization Table can efficiently be used to support orthopaedist residents in their training. Going through a case in real-size together with the supervisor helps ensure the quality of surgery. It is also a valuable practical component of lectures or courses.
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.
