With the rapid development of examination technology, digital DR technology is one of the indispensable examinations in medical imaging department. Digital DR is mainly categorized into bed type, double column type, sickle arm type, and suspended digital DR. Among them, the suspended digital DR has a suspended head, the bulb tube can be lifted up and down, and it can be moved horizontally and vertically along the overhead rail, which makes its shooting range larger and its movement more flexible compared with other DRs.
Suspended Digital DR Specialized Positioning Photography – Weight-bearing Position
Non-weight-bearing films in the foot and ankle position can miss deformities in the alignment of bone structures and abnormal changes in the joint cavity.
When tendons, ligaments, bone tissues and other structures are injured, the ankle structure alignment may appear normal, but in weight-bearing situation will show obvious pathology, such as arch collapse.
Clinically, there are more than ten kinds of complex positions, which require the formation angle between the centerline of the bulb tube and the examined part. In the process of posing, the flexible mechanical design of Perlove Suspended Digital DR, the digital display of the angle value, and the dynamic fluoroscopic image observation function and other features can make the posing of these positions more accurate and make the doctor’s work more efficient.
