Follow-up 3D analysis: once a patient has been scanned several times, a monitoring 3D analysis is computed. Changes that are significant are highlighted by a specific color mapping on the 3D hip visualization to identify changes that occurred on the bone, ie. Increase or decrease of the density and thickness. The points are also positioned on each reference curve to verify quantitative changes at the cortical and trabecular compartments.
Automatic report generation: once the 3D analysis is performed, a report is generated and can be exported in pdf. Comments can be added directly from 3D-SHAPER® interface and the report header can be personalized with the medical center details. In case of follow-up examination, both daily analysis and follow-up analysis are displayed on the report (with 3D visualizations of the hip and reference curves with 3D measurements).
Network connectivity: 3D-SHAPER® computed unit can be connected to a medical center network to allow remote access from any computer logged onto the network. All automations are maintained and this allows physicians to obtain their patients’ 3D analysis from their office or from their laptop if travelling or working outside the medical center, as long as such laptop is logged onto the network.
