VolumeRAD for orthopedic practices
“We're saving the doctor time, we're saving the patient time, we're getting to the diagnoses more quickly, more effectively”
David E. Quinn, M.D., Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon at the Capital Region Orthopaedics, Albany, NY.
Today orthopedic specialists rely on standard radiography for diagnosing skeletal trauma, monitoring bone union, and evaluating the success of surgical interventions. Advanced medical imaging is often ordered for complex cases that radiography cannot solve. These additional imaging modalities may result in higher radiation exposure, higher imaging costs, and a delay in diagnosis & treatment that could also mean more anxiety and discomfort for the patient.
VolumeRAD digital tomosynthesis can be used to detect and monitor complex fractures and implants whilst being competitive when compared to other imaging modalities on radiation dose, workflow and economics.
Orthopedic Applications of VolumeRAD Digital Tomosynthesis: Virtual panel discussion
In this virtual panel discussion and clinical case review, learn how a top academic department of orthopedic surgery and a leading orthopedic center in the US are using GE’s VolumeRAD Digital Tomosynthesis in their practice.

John A. Carrino, M.D., MPH
Vice Chairman of Radiology, Department of Radiology
and Imaging at the Hospital of Special Surgery
in New York, NY leads the panel.
Samir Mehta, M.D.,
Chief of Orthopaedic Trauma & Fracture Service and Assistant Professor of
Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Pennsylvania, presents 2
fracture cases that involve hardware.
"What we can get with advanced imaging is an ability to understand our fracture pattern when it's out
of plane. VolumeRAD really does this very well”
“We actually have little signs up reminding us, Don't forget about getting a tomo”
Watch the case review
David E. Quinn, M.D.,
Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon at the
Capital Region Orthopaedics, Albany, NY, discusses
three upper extremity cases.
“As orthopedic surgeons, we’re trying answer some very simple questions especially with respect to
fracture care ... Is there a problem? Does the patient need an operation or is it indicated? Has it been
Is the problem resolved?
I've found that digital tomosynthesis helps answer these questions
in a substantial percentage of cases
with minimal risk and minimal expense.”
