Marketing approval granted for Planmed Verity extremity scanner in South Korea
Planmed has received clearance in South Korea from the Korean FDA for its Planmed Verity extremity scanner. Planmed Verity is designed to find subtle extremity fractures at the first visit to the clinic; fractures that have been the most commonly missed using only 2D radiographs. According to the company, the Planmed Verity scanner is a unique solution to the problem with fast 3D imaging at the point of care. It is intended for pre- and postoperative imaging with better resolution, patient adaptability and significantly lower dose than full-body CTs.
Unlike any other 3D imaging device, Planmed Verity also allows weight-bearing imaging of the extremities. As a dedicated extremity scanner, the system is designed to adapt to the patient with anatomy-specific imaging programs, movements and trays. The adjustable user interfaces and efficient all-in-one workflow are also designed to maximise the operator's soothing presence for the patient.
