1. CT SCAN
The patient undergoes a computerized axial tomography (CT) scan.
2. IMAGES ARE LOADED ON THE WEBSITE
The surgeon uploads CT images to the Permedica online portal.
3. EVALUATION OF IMAGE QUALITY
The images are analyzed to assess their compatibility with quality standards.
4. 3D RECONSTRUCTION
Starting from the images, the 3D models of the tibia and femur are constructed and a first pre-operative planning proposal for the surgeon is made. The surgeon has the option to change the planning from the online platform at any time.
5. PLANNING VALIDATION AND GUIDES PRODUCTION
Once satisfied with the 3D planning, the surgeon validates the planning.
At this point the production of the guides (femoral and tibial) can begin.
6. GUIDES DELIVERY
As soon as they are ready, the guides are packaged, sterilized and sent to the hospital ready for use.
