CurveBeam Connect: It’s Time to Find a New Gold Standard for Orthopedic Imaging
CurveBeam, the internationally recognized leader in Extremity CT imaging, is excited to share their new podcast CurveBeam Connect, a show where anyone interested in healthcare and technology can learn about the amazing new innovations that are affecting medicine.
Our host is Vinti Singh, Director of Marketing at CurveBeam, and today’s guest is Dr. Francois Lintz, M.D., Orthopedic Surgeon at Clinique de L’Union in Toulouse, France. Dr. Lintz is a renowned foot & ankle surgeon, as well as: Scientific Committee Chair for the French Foot and Ankle Society, the Fellowship Committee Chair for the European Foot Society, and a Founder and Member of the International Weight-Bearing CT Society.
Dr. Lintz has been using a CurveBeam Weight-Bearing CT System since 2016 in both his daily practice and his research, and has found they’re more accurate than the X-ray, which project images and represent a 3D structure in a 2-dimensional format.
“It’s not reality itself,” said Dr. Lintz. “When we plan surgeries– we’d like to know exactly what we’re looking at. In film, it’s distorted by a number of effects and makes it more difficult for us in terms of angles, distances, and things we require to plan for a good surgery.”
Conventional methods, like X-rays, are thought of as the “gold standard,” but there has been a huge emergence of three-dimensional imaging in other fields and industries. The weight-bearing tool is a game changer, giving the ability to see the foot and ankle in 3D, in a standing position. We can see actual damage with a model that very accurately represents reality.
In this podcast, the two will talk about CurveBeam systems, the InstaX plugins, all the different views that are available, and how these views are available at the click of a button, without an X-Ray tech moving the patient and tube around.
