From orthopedic C-arm X-ray machines to bone densitometers


In the modern medical system, orthopedics, as a specialized field dealing with diseases of the musculoskeletal system, has a series of high-tech specialized instruments indispensable to its diagnostic and therapeutic process. These devices not only improve the accuracy of diagnosis, but also enhance the precision of surgery and treatment effect. Next, P&A Medical will introduce several commonly used orthopedic instruments and discuss their functions and applications in the clinic.

  1. Orthopedic C-arm X-ray machine

X-ray machine is one of the most commonly used imaging equipment in orthopedic diagnosis. It can provide clear images about conditions such as fractures, arthritis, and osteoporosis. Through X-ray examination, doctors can quickly assess the condition of the patient’s bones and provide an important basis for subsequent treatment. Below is a domestic flatbed 3D C-arm PLX C7600 for orthopedics, spine surgery, orthopedic surgery, trauma orthopedics and other fields.

  1. Computed tomography (CT) scanning

CT scanning in orthopedics is mainly used to obtain detailed cross-sectional images of bones and surrounding soft tissues. Compared with conventional X-rays, CT provides a three-dimensional view, which is irreplaceable for complex fractures, spinal problems, and pre-operative evaluation of joint replacement.

  1. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

MRI equipment uses a strong magnetic field and radio waves to produce detailed images of the body’s internal structures. In orthopedics, MRI is particularly important for detecting soft tissue injuries such as tendon and ligament tears and disc problems, and is preferred for its high contrast resolution of soft tissue.

  1. Arthroscopy

Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical device that allows access to the inside of a joint through a small incision for diagnosis and treatment. It is equipped with a fine camera and surgical tools that allow the surgeon to directly visualize the internal structure of the joint and perform appropriate surgical operations, such as removing broken cartilage or repairing ligaments.

  1. CPM Joint Rehabilitator

The CPM Joint Rehabilitator is a type of physical exercise therapy that provides a full range of passive movements of the extremities, such as extension, flexion, and abduction, through the use of a joint rehabilitator. Usually, it adopts power transformer, stepping gear motor, control board, driver, limit switch, and casing as the main power components, and simulates the human body to make reciprocal extension and abduction movements with linear slide or speed reducer.

6.Bone Densitometer

Bone densitometer is used to diagnose osteoporosis, mainly by measuring the mineral content in the bones to assess the strength and density of the bones. This painless test is essential for early detection of osteoporosis and preventive measures.

These orthopedic instruments play a key role in ensuring patient safety, enhancing the success rate of surgery and speeding up the recovery process, greatly improving the quality and efficiency of orthopedic treatment. As technology continues to advance, future orthopaedic instruments will become more intelligent and precise, thus bringing greater benefits to patients.
