New pedCAT scanner soon to be available
6th October 2017
The Hospital of St John & St Elizabeth has become the first British private hospital to install the specialist 3D pedCAT scanner, a CT for the foot & ankle.
Based at the London Foot & Ankle Centre, the pedCAT scanner enables weight bearing ultra low dose CT scans of both feet simultaneously, in either standing or seated positions, in under a minute or partial single foot in 20 seconds.
The full 3D volume is ready to view in less than three minutes. It also has advanced viewing and planning software to get unobstructed views of the foot and ankle from any angle. It also has the ability to rotate and navigate the 3D data and make exact measurements as well as viewing unobstructed slices in multiple planes including sag, axial and coronal.
London Foot & Ankle Centre is an internationally renowned clinic, attracting patients from around the world and working with Premier League football clubs, UK Athletics and many more elite sports people. The centre was founded in 2003 by world-renowned surgeon, Mr Mark Davies, to improve treatment standards by creating a service concentrating wholly upon the foot and ankle.
