New technology easily scans scoliosis patients’ spine

Some orthopedic experts in Texas are now utilizing an advanced technology to easily gain an accurate impression of the spines of their patients who have undergone scoliosis surgery, reported on September 24.

Compared to the conventional x-ray procedures, the new scanner only need about 20 seconds for doctors to have “extremely clear” three-dimensional images of their patients’ spines after undergoing surgery. Aside from extreme accuracy, scoliosis patients are not exposed to too much radiation from the new scanner. Scoliosis patients are at risk of illnesses from being exposed to radiation with traditional x-rays. Texas orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Mark Rahm, explained that every bone is scanned using the new technology, unlike conventional x-rays. The new scanner is currently available in an estimated 25 hospitals.

Though this advanced technology is beneficial for scoliosis patients, undergoing surgical repair and its continuous treatment is often expensive. However, the lawyers at Williams Hart may possibly help you get treatment funds if Depakote medication taken by pregnant mothers caused your loved one’s scoliosis.
