CurveBeam: Who We Are
About CurveBeam’s Weight Bearing CT Imaging Systems
CurveBeam specializes in weight bearing CT imaging. CurveBeam’s pedCAT and LineUP systems have been installed across North America, South America, Europe, Australia and China.
The systems are compact, and can fit into a 8’ x 10’ room.
The systems plug into a standard 115/230 VAC wall outlet, making them ideal for the point-of-care setting.
The systems are self-shielded, reducing the amount of external shielding needed for radiation protection.
Operators select from specific kVp protocols and mA is fixed. A radiologic technologist without specialized training in computed tomography is qualified to operate the systems in most states in the United States.
Patient positioning is straightforward. Patient Scan time is less than a minute.
CurveBeam system scans are reimbursed via CPY codes 73700 – CT Lower Extremity without contrast in the United States.
CurveBeam datasets are DICOM compliant and fit seamlessly into existing PACS systems and workflows.
CurveBeam’s install base includes Hospital for Special Surgery, Massachusetts General Hospital, Mayo Clinics and OrthoCarolina.
“The weight bearing CT changed by daily practice. In former times, we did standard X-Rays with weight bearing first and then if we were interested in 3D imaging, we sent the patient to CT. This could take days or even weeks. Now I have everything together in one minute.” – Dr. Martinus Richter, MD, PhD
