The Weight-Bearing CT International Study Group, Brought to You by CurveBeam

Dr. Martinus Richter from Krankenhaus Rummelsberg will be moderating a panel of experts from around the world. Professor Alberto Leardini from the Rizzoli Institute, Dr. Francois Lintz from Clinique de L’Union, Dr. Cesar de Cesar Netton from the Hospital for Special Surgery, and Dr. Alastair Younger from the Footbridge Centre for Integrated Orthopedic Care will join and discuss the latest thinking in weight-bearing CT.

The goal of the study group is to promote dialogue and collaboration on weight-bearing CT research, as well as create standardizations for weight-bearing CT measurements and analysis.

Weight-bearing CT scans use low doses of radiation while creating an image of the foot and ankle while the patient is standing in a natural standing position. Having patients in a natural standing position is beneficial for doctors because they can see the bones and tendons of the foot and ankle under normal conditions. Patients with pain and deformities seem to benefit most from using weight-bearing CT scans.

While many years of research have shown the benefits of these types of scans, we know there are many out there who still have questions. This International Study Group will provide you with answers. We would also love to have orthopedics and podiatrists with experience with weight-bearing CT to join us and share your own experiences with the technology.

Anyone interested in learning more about weight-bearing CT, including the Cone Beam CT imaging equipment for orthopedics and podiatrists designed by CurveBeam, is invited to join us for presentations from these experts.

Space is limited. RSVP today at wbctstudygroup.com!
