The Advancements of Mobile C-arm CT in Orthopedic Surgery


Mobile C-arm CT, also known as “intraoperative CT,” is a cutting-edge technology that provides high-definition 2D and 3D images within the operating room. This system enables surgeons to generate real-time three-dimensional skeletal imaging during surgery and offers cross-sectional views in sagittal, coronal, and transverse planes similar to traditional CT scans. With its precise diagnostic capabilities and surgical planning assistance, the mobile C-arm CT system by Puai Medical has revolutionized the field.

Digital Tomosynthesis (DTS) – The Key Technology:
Digital Tomosynthesis (DTS) is an innovative imaging method developed by combining conventional computed tomography (CT) principles with flat-panel detector technology and digital image reconstruction algorithms. In the case of mobile C-arm products, this feature has become colloquially known as “mobile C-arm CT” technology. By incorporating DTS into their systems, Perlove Medical has established itself as a leading brand in China with a Class III medical device registration certificate for its mobile C-arm CT.

Applications in Orthopedic Surgery:

1. Joint Replacement Procedures:
Joints play a crucial role in limb functionality; therefore, achieving accurate fracture reduction or stable implant placement while restoring joint integrity is imperative for successful outcomes. Mobile C-arm CT systems are widely used during shoulder, elbow, hip, and knee joint replacement surgeries for accurate positioning of implants and anatomical realignment. This advanced imaging tool aids surgeons in precise placement of prosthetics while minimizing radiation exposure time and dose.

2. Spine Surgery Applications:
Spine surgery demands meticulous precision due to the complexity of spinal anatomy. Mobile C-arm CT systems offer real-time visualization capabilities that provide surgeons with accurate 2D and 3D images during procedures involving spinal implants or vertebral realignment. By enhancing screw placement accuracy while reducing operative time and complications both intraoperatively and postoperatively.

Mobile C-Arm CT 3D Imaging

The integration of mobile C-arm CT technology into orthopedic surgery has significantly improved patient outcomes by enabling more accurate diagnosis and surgical planning through high-definition imaging capabilities within the operating room itself.
With Perlove Medical‘s pioneering achievement as one of China’s first domestic brands to receive Class III medical device registration certificates for their mobile C-arm systems ensures that healthcare professionals have access to state-of-the-art tools necessary for optimal patient care.
The versatile applications highlighted here emphasize how this remarkable advancement holds great promise not only within orthopedic surgery but also across various surgical disciplines where precision imaging plays an essential role towards better treatment outcomes
