The first

TRUE 3D
Weight Bearing CT
Imaging for Foot & Ankle pedCAT™ is the in-office solution for advanced diagnostic imaging requirements of foot and ankle surgeons.
Greater Information – Optimized Treatment
Capture 3D Volume to add a new dimension to diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment planning.
Reveal indications under true physiologic weight bearing loads without bony superimpositions and plan with greater accuracy.

 Preoperative Planning  Diagnose, Confirm or Rule Out Fractures  Evaluate Subluxations & Dislocations  Evaluate Arthritic Joints  Early Detection of Osteomyelitis

STAND & SCAN

your patient in 68 seconds or less
TREATMENT PLAN with intuitive yet powerful visualization software. Review data in multiple slice planes: axial, coronal, sagittal; and 3D renderings. Make distance and angle measurements. COMMUNICATE via 3D visualization with the patient for greater plan acceptance. Put advanced imaging technology to work for you.

CAPTURE RELEVANT DIAGNOSTIC INFORMATION NOT SEEN IN PLAIN FILM X-RAYS: Cone Beam CT provides 3D volumetric data with undistorted and unobstructed anatomical details. POINT-OF-CARE: Compact design facilitating in-office accessibility. PROVEN TECHNOLOGY: Cone Beam CT Imaging has revolutionized treatment paths in Dental and ENT practices in the past 10 years, and is now being adapted by the foot and ankle community.

Clinical Cases
Assess bone quality as indicated by the presence or absence of bone cysts. Scroll through image slices to thoroughly evaluate the size and location of pathology. Diagnose, confirm or rule out fractures with greater precision. Clearly identify the relationship between the fracture and adjacent joints.
