[Fishers, IN], Oct. 23rd, 2017 - Q-Spine, a technology that provides biometrics of the spine, will be launched at North America Spine Society (NASS), October 25th – 28th. Q-Spine is a software tool to assist spine surgeon, orthopedists and chiropractors in their planning therapy and surgical procedures by means of visualization and quantification of relative biomechanical changes between weight-bearing and recumbent MRI lumbar spine examination.

In addition to being showcased in Esaote North America booth #13 luminary Orthopedic Spine Surgeon, Dr. D. Guyer, M.D. from Texas Back Institute will be presenting an Abstract on Q-Spine during the Innovative Technology Presentations Q-Spine: New MRI-Based Quantification Method for L-Spine Analysis (Non-CME) Room: W230CD, Wednesday, October 25, 2017: 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM.

Clinical Benefits of Q-Spine

Facilitates and simplifies the analysis of weight-bearing versus recumbent MRI by semi-automatic segmentation of the Lumbar-spine
Provides a numerical quantification of the relative changes
Reliable and coherent measures by taking out the "human factor"
Provides ability to evaluate patient follow-up with numerical evidence
Generates a PDF report to be attached to the medical report

Dr. Guyer states, "We are excited to present the Q spine software, which is a semi-automated software analysis used with the Esaote weight-bearing Brio G MRI scanner which reliably calculates spinal canal area, dural diameter, lumbar lordosis and sacral angles. We believe this will demonstrate nerve compression which may not be diagnosed with supine MRI scanners and help surgeons manage sagittal alignment in their patients."

Q-Spine is available on Esaote's G-Scan Brio a dedicated MRI system featuring a comprehensive set of coils and sequences to provide complete MSK MRI, from spine to extremities — plus the ability to perform unique weight-bearing studies.
