CurveBeam Hosts Conversation with Iowa Researchers on New Lab Built Around Weight Bearing CT Imaging

The University of Iowa in Iowa City, Iowa, is a premier academic research institution. The Department of Orthopedics and Rehabilitation includes a a state-of-the-art Biomechanics Laboratory, while the Department of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science runs an advanced Orthopedic Gait Analysis Lab. The institution recently opened the Orthopedic Functional Imaging Research Laboratory (OFIRL), which is centered around weight bearing CT imaging. OFIRL is the first research lab in the world to utilize a CurveBeam HiRise weight bearing CT imaging system. The HiRise  provides weight bearing 3D datasets of the entire lower extremity including hip & pelvis.

Clinical Applications Specialist Jenna Roller led a deep dive on March 31 with Iowa researchers across disciplines on how they are harnessing the HiRise to advance their investigations.
