About Us

Experience the difference with weight-bearing imaging.

The compact CurveBeam medical system is well suited for mobile configurations and provides radiology and orthopedic specialists with 3D detail of the extremities. The system permits the patient to stand during the scan, so anatomy can be assessed while in the weight-bearing or load bearing position.

Patients benefit by having a more accurate and timely diagnosis, greater convenience and time savings (one visit at one location), a simple and fast procedure, low radiation exposure, covered by most insurers (Medicare included), and is less expensive than most alternatives.

Practice benefits include access to more accurate information and better diagnostics (3D, weight-bearing, bilateral), quicker results, increased patient compliance, high patient satisfaction, improved quality of care, and positive cash flow. Be up to date with the very latest and improve patient outcomes as well as the practice’s bottom line.

Less Than One Minute Scan

The scan time is less than one minute with the results in 15 minutes or less. The system automatically generates a full 3D CT volume: Axial, Sagittal, Coronal, PLUS a set of 2D XRays with every scan.

Ultra-low Dose

Ultra-low dose cone beam CT imaging systems output 3D views to give specialists the information they need to create comprehensive treatment plans.

Major Benefits

3D diagnosis creates accurate views of rotation and minor fractures. Faster surgery without “wait to see”, complete patient planning, and reimbursement for scans including Medicare.
