Customer story | Victoria House Medical Imaging (VHMI)
Achieving CT MSK imaging excellence with Dynamic Volume scanning
Victoria House is recognised as the premier provider of musculoskeletal and sports imaging services in Victoria, and has been providing expert diagnostic imaging services to the Victorian community for almost 30 years.
Three main challenges facing VHMI CT MSK imaging were
Imaging metal hardware and joint replacement
Inability to perform proper dynamic 4D imaging, and
Obtaining high resolution images of bony anatomy and pathology.
With Canon Medical’s Aquilion ONE Dynamic imaging, VHMI can put patients in positions which reproduce their symptoms caused by impingement or instability. By showing abnormal movement of those bones, specific structures which cause the impingement, and the particular movements and position that causes the problem, they can identify the ligament injuries. This has been very enlightening for VHMI and their referring clinicians. They can now get a better understanding of these problems, and explain the cause and treatment of these conditions to their patients in a more understandable way.
Dynamic assessment of Dynamic Wrist Pathology, Posteromedical Impingement of the Elbow, and Clavicle Fracture.
Case Study 1: Dynamic wrist pathology
Wrist instability is a major clinical dilemma for clinicians and Aquilion ONE CT can help to solve the problem with dynamic imaging.
Case Study 2: Posteromedial impingement of the elbow
4D CT clearly displays whether the ossified body in the joint is a loose body or part of an osteophyte spurring from the bone.
Case Study 3: Clavicle fracture
SEMAR technology overcomes the imaging problem of metal artefact and displays fine details around the fixation and joint replacements.
»“The 4D orthopaedic software enables radiographers to provide the best quality images to the radiologists for reporting.” «
»“Aquilion ONE helped us solve challenges such as artefacts around metal, the inability to do true 4D imaging and the inability to provide high resolution or bone characterisation of fractures and lesions.” «
