Pre-operative planning with the prosthesis documentation module
The dicomPACS® prosthesis documentation module allows you to plan and/or document operations. There are two ways to plan an operation with prosthesis templates:
Planning and/or documenting operations with digitised prosthesis templates does not require a film identical image display. The prosthesis template is simply selected from a set of templates and displayed in the image as an annotation. OR Technology can add new or not yet digitised prosthesis templates to the system at any time.
Planning with existing transparency prosthesis templates (provided by the manufacturers) requires a film identical image to be displayed on the monitor in the same size as an equivalent analogue X-ray image on film. The existing prosthesis transparency in the relevant scale of your X-ray unit is placed onto the monitor instead of onto an X-ray film. The prosthesis template is transferred onto the X-ray image by means of the dicomPACS® drawing functions, and then stored and printed.
