RSA stands for radiostereometric analysis, which describes a special way of taking two x-rays from different directions at the same time, creating a “stereo” image. RSA x-rays allow surgeons to measure precisely how the body and the implant are interacting. This enables them to accomplish two goals at once – while measuring the patient’s progress, they can also use information from this research to improve implant design and technology for future patients.
The Halifax SR Suite 1.0 (FDA approved) is built for hospitals and clinics everywhere, this easy to use, fully digital system fits in a regular size imaging room and can equally perform general radiographic imaging as well as RSA imaging.
The Halifax SR Suite 1.0 allows for
- Enhanced standard of care for your total joint replacement (TJR) patients,
- Orthopaedic companies the ability to clinically validate new products,
- Industry and regulators the highest level of post‐market surveillance of TJR implants,
- Doctors to more efficiency and effectively diagnose implant instability.
