Imaging Services offered at Footbridge
Certain foot and ankle orthopaedic conditions are best diagnosed with weight-bearing images, and the LineUP CT machine (used to scan foot, ankle and knee) is the first weight-bearing CT scanner of its kind in Canada.
The LineUP permits the physician interpreting the images to assess changes in the position and alignment of a patient’s foot and ankle in the natural standing state, and automatically creates 3D reconstructions from its slices, allowing for images of higher bony detail; all resulting in more accurate evaluation, and faster diagnosis and treatment planning.
The InReach is a CT machine which scans the hand, wrist and elbow. Both machines deliver very low radiation dose to the patient (about the same as a regular x-ray exam) but result in three-dimensional images (unlike traditional 2D x-ray films).
