About Sectra CTMA
Sectra CTMA is a method that facilitates the measurement of movements between implants and bone using computed tomography images (CT images). The method uses CT images taken typically up to two years after implantation to measure the 3D movement of an implant or bone fragment on a submillimeter scale. With this data, scientists can analyze the movement of an implant or bone segment over time. This early high-precision information provides a strong predictor of the long-term survival of the implant.
Sectra CTMA is part of the orthopaedic module of Sectra's enterprise imaging solution. The enterprise imaging solution provides a unified strategy for all imaging needs while lowering operational costs. The scalable and modular solution, with a VNA at its core, allows healthcare providers to grow from ology to ology and from enterprise to enterprise.
