Planmed to distribute Disior™ medical imaging software in the USA after Bonelogic™ receives 510(k) clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration
On February 5th, Disior™’s class II medical imaging software device for treatment and surgical planning in the field of orthopedics (foot & ankle and hand & wrist) Bonelogic™ (Bonelogic 2.0) received 510(k) clearance from the US FDA.
Within the Planmed-Disior distribution agreement Bonelogic is paired with Planmed’s Verity. The Verity is a low-dose extremity CT scanner which provides 3D images of extremities like the hand & wrist and the foot & ankle. It was the first device in the market able to provide 3D images of the foot & ankle region under natural loading conditions, an imaging technique now commonly termed weight-bearing CT (WBCT).
WBCT scanners like the Verity alongside automated medical imaging software like Bonelogic are considered are to be at the forefront of medical innovations for extremity orthopedics. Within the foot & ankle complex, WBCT is a proven tool in both European and American orthopedic clinics for the following common conditions:
Bonelogic™ allows for complete orthopedic characterization of the foot & ankle, as well as the hand & wrist. The software provides mathematical models of a patients’ anatomy and metrics that describe the relationship between bones, which are essential to understanding the degree of pathology or trauma.
“The technology within Bonelogic™ means that this type of analysis is completed in minutes. Whereas, in most other medical imaging software it would take hours. Therefore, with Bonelogic™ the barriers to clinical adoption of 3D analytics are removed.” Anna-Maria Henell, CEO, Disior.
The magic of combining the distribution of the Verity extremity CT and Bonleogic is that clinical workflows for common hand & wrist and foot & ankle conditions can be optimized. Reducing the workload of radiologists and clinicians.
