How does it work?
The algorithm uses a statistical model incorporating shape and density variations captured in a database of patients. This statistical model is subsequently registered onto the 2D DXA image, resulting in a 3D subject-specific reconstruction of the patient’s bone. From this 3D reconstruction can be automatically computed a set of 3D clinical parameters allowing for a better management of osteoporosis.
Integrated to the Medilink range:
- Embedded in 3D-DXA box.
- Computing time 3D/2D algorithm and cortical thickness take 2 minutes.
