Digital Templating of Pre-Operative X-Rays

Digital Templating of Pre-Operative X-Rays

Digital templating is a more advanced way to plan joint replacement surgeries without using x-rays. This technique maps out the joint replacement procedures in a more precise way. 

Digital Templating

Digital templating allows the surgeon not only to map out where your hip implants will go but also will show what the implant will look like once implanted. Images of the prosthetic can be overlaid on the patient’s anatomy to show how it will fit. 

Once the implants are mapped out, the template can be used for more precise planning of the replacement surgery. It also means the surgeon doesn’t have to take time during the actual procedure to try different implant sizes to find the best fit. It also can be used to head off any possible complications during surgery. 

The software for digital templating includes images of different implant sizes made to fit each patient’s individual anatomy. While it’s used with hip replacements, digital templating can also be used on other orthopaedic surgeries, such as knee replacements.
