|One powerful result
of using The Novaptus Systems Scanner Suite is the ability to create
a 3D digital data archive of a patient's procedure and progress.
Offices today are crammed with
inefficient paper archives. These paper archives are often in disarray
and are essentially just a folder of notes regarding the patient
and the particular procedure the patient undertook.
There may have been some pictures
taken, but there is really no way of retrieving 3D information of
the patient prior to, and after the surgical procedure has been
performed. Moreover, these files are not portable and often not
even copied and held in a safe place.
For the first time, a 3D digital
archive of a patient has been created.
This digital archive allows
retrieval of an immense mountain of data related to the patient
and his or her procedure.
This archive can be accessed
through common browser technology.
There are many uses for the
digital archive. These range from patient progress, consultations,
surgical validations and even malpractice defense.
An important use of the digital
archive is for teaching purposes. Your work can be preserved and
utilized to help other surgeons or students understand better how
to do a particular procedure.
