3DDXA algorithms-based technology relies on a population database of QCT scans, to create a shape and density 3D model, that is then registered onto a patient hip DXA scan. In a second step, the cortex is segmented in order to separate cortical from trabecular bone. This provides a patient-specific 3D model of the hip and facilitates the performance specific cortical and trabecular bone measurements.
Brief overview of 3D-SHAPER® software addition in the hip DXA scan workflow, with a review of the software interface and outcomes, with patient-specific 3D hip images, after a DXA is performed and aBMD image generated. This shows the automatic and rapid image post-processing workflow of 3D-SHAPER®, when added into a clinical practice.
