Planmed Verity Mobile Extremity CT Scanner for Orthopedic Imaging Receives CE Mark

Planmed Verity Mobile Extremity CT Scanner for Orthopedic Imaging Receives CE Mark

Planmed Verity, a new, mobile extremity scanner for orthopedic imaging of the extremities receives the CE mark and thus, is now available for sale in the EU and many other countries where the CE certificate permits sales.

Planmed Verity Extremity Scanner utilizes cone-beam CT (CBCT) technology that provides fast and accurate low-dose 3D imaging of peripheral skeletal fractures and disorders at the point-of-care. The compact, mobile device can be easily sited in any existing X-ray room, side-by-side with other imaging systems.

“As an all new approach to imaging of extremities, the Planmed Verity system has already raised a lot of interest within the field of orthopedic imaging. Now the pending system deliveries can begin”, says Mr. Vesa Mattila, Vice President of Planmed Oy.

Planmed’s innovation provides volumetric 3D imaging for accurate and fast diagnosis with a substantially lower radiation dose compared to conventional CT imaging. During the scan, which takes less than 20 seconds, images are acquired using a short X-ray pulse instead of continuous radiation. This enables a low radiation dose.

For optimum patient comfort the Planmed Verity features an adaptable, soft-surfaced gantry with a TearDrop™ -shaped bore optimized for orthopedic imaging. The gantry and positioning trays are easily adjustable for imaging for example a foot, ankle, knee, hand, wrist, or elbow. Furthermore, special gantry movements allow weight-bearing 3D scans of a standing patient, a new way of extremity imaging which has not been possible with conventional CT scanners.

Planmed Verity® utilizes CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) technology to provide high resolution volumetric (3D) images of the extremities at a particularly low dose. Compact, stand-alone and mobile Planmed Verity can fit into almost any existing X-ray room and can be easily sited even side by side with other imaging equipment. With adjustable, soft surfaced gantry and dedicated patient positioning trays Planmed Verity provides versatile patient positioning and optimized patient comfort.

3D Orthopedic Imaging at Low Dose

Based on Cone Beam Computed Tomography technology

Volumetric imaging with multi-planar reconstruction and volume rendering provide optimal visualization of fractures and deformations

Superior isotropic resolution of up to 0.2mm (optional 0.1mm high resolution mode)

Dose up to ten times lower compared to extremity imaging protocols with conventional MDCT (Multi Detector Computed Tomography)
