On Jan. 16, 2021, the International Weight Bearing CT Society will host its second virtual meeting, which will feature invited talks and research submitted via the Society’s call for abstracts. CurveBeam is proud to sponsor the event, which will bring together WBCT experts from around the world.
The event is free of charge for attendees, offering a valuable resource for insights about the growing use of and wide range of benefits offered by WBCT. You can register here.
