Lucknow's KGMU prepares for revolutionary change: 3D imaging in Orthopaedic Trauma Surgeries
In an endeavor to enhance the precision of treatment for complex fracture injuries during surgical procedures, the King George Medical University (KGMU) in Lucknow is poised to integrate cutting-edge 3D imaging technology.
This state-of-the-art imaging technique harnesses X-ray and other scanned data which can be fed into the computer systems. The data is processed to create lifelike models of fractured bones, offering detailed insights into every aspect of the injury, enabling doctors to get a better understanding of the issue.
Enhanced precision during complex fracture surgeries with 3D imaging
Conventional 2D intraoperative imaging often falls short in delivering sufficient information for optimal outcomes in orthopaedic trauma surgery. High-quality imaging is essential for swift and reliable assessment of joints and bones. Intraoperative 3D imaging has demonstrated its effectiveness in numerous clinical trials and case series globally.
One of the most prominent public hospitals in UP, KGMU, via its orthopaedic department, conducts hundreds of replacement surgeries annually. All of these can benefit from 3D imaging technology.
Upon integration of the 3D imaging tech, various departments including orthopaedics and arthroplasty will be able to more precisely perform complex surgeries.
