Planmed is pleased to bring a new medical imaging software to the U.S. market. Paired with the pioneering Planmed Verity® CT scanner, the Disior Bonelogic® 2.0 software enables better and faster diagnostics for patients and generates time and cost savings for radiologists and clinicians.
The collaboration and distribution agreement between Planmed Oy and Disior Oy allows integrating Disior’s orthopedic analysis software with Planmed’s high-tech cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scanner.
Planmed Verity® is a low-dose CT scanner which provides 3D images of upper and lower extremities. It was the first device in the market able to provide three-dimensional images of the foot and ankle region under natural load, an imaging technique now commonly known as weight-bearing CT (WBCT).
WBCT scanners, such as Planmed Verity, alongside automated medical imaging software, such as Disior Bonelogic®, are considered to be at the forefront of medical innovations for extremity orthopedics. Within the foot and ankle complex, WBCT is a proven tool in both European and American orthopedic clinics for the following common conditions:
- Hallux valgus
- Syndesmotic injuries and instabilities
- Progression collapse foot deformity
- Extremity arthritis
Bonelogic allows for the complete orthopedic characterization of the foot and ankle, as well as the hand and wrist. The software provides mathematical models of a patient’s anatomy and metrics that describe the relationship between bones, which are essential to understanding the degree of pathology or trauma.
“The technology within Bonelogic means that this type of analysis is completed in minutes, whereas in most other medical imaging software it would take hours. Therefore, Bonelogic removes the barriers of the clinical adoption of 3D analytics,” states Anna-Maria Henell, CEO of Disior.
The magic of combining the distribution of the Planmed Verity extremity CT and the Bonelogic software is that the clinical workflows for common hand and wrist as well as foot and ankle conditions can be optimized. This significantly reduces the workload of radiologists and clinicians.
“Bringing Bonelogic to the U.S. market has been a long-term goal for Disior and receiving the FDA 510(k) clearance is a huge achievement. By entering the U.S. market with Planmed, we can combine our resources to bring a new standard of care to U.S. orthopedics,” Ms. Henell concludes.
“We are excited to be able to offer the Disior automatic segmentation and analysis software to our customers in the USA. These features are something our customers have requested, and we are happy to answer their needs,” says Johan Moed, National Sales Manager of Planmed USA. “Our extremity CT system is now more versatile than ever before. It is an easy-to-use and cost-effective solution, which makes it a great tool for any imaging center, clinic or hospital.”
