3D Scan Right Hip Joint
What is 3D Scan Right Hip Joint?
3D scan of the right hip joint is a diagnostic imaging test that is used by surgeons to facilitate pre-surgical planning. It is a recent concept in orthopedics. The 3D CT is a method of surface rendition of joint anatomy with the help of special computer software. In modern CT scanners, the software is available as an optional package. The procedure consists of securing plain axial scans of the right hip joint. Thereafter, the computer provides a carefully chosen threshold attenuation value, and it scans each CT slice thoroughly and gives a better view.
There are no restrictions after the procedure. So, you can perform your regular duties after the test. The reports are sent to you within 24 hours. Your orthopedic surgeon will discuss the results with you.
