Virtually the same dose* as 2D xrays, with much more diagnostic information.
The pedCAT®, first in-office TRUE 3D weight bearing CT for the foot and ankle, puts optimal treatment planning at your fingertips for greater confidence of increased predictability in surgical outcomes. With virtually the same radiation dose as that of a traditional 2D x-ray, the pedCAT® accesses clinical conditions including, but not limited to, fractures, dislocations, arthritic joints, and early detection of osteomyelitis for quicker diagnosis, evaluation and treatment planning.
