DDR is X-ray that moves!
Dynamic Digital Radiology (DDR) cineradiography is performed on regular X-ray equipment, through a series of individual digital images acquired at high speed and low dose, capturing up to 20 seconds of movement in a single exam.
The resulting images can be looped to observe motion of anatomical structures or they can be enhanced, quantified, reprocessed and replayed at fast to slow motion, as well as one frame at a time.
Advantage of X-ray that moves
Performed in less than a minute by radiology staff without
the need for physician presence.
Low Dose Radiation
Radiation of a 20 second exam is equivalent to two
standard X-rays, or 10 days in the sun.
Convenient & Versatile
Performs all standard X-rays, and images are taken
standing, seated or on a table.
DDR use in Orthopedics
• View the dynamic relationship of bones and soft tissue
• Examine joints and structures at rest and in full motion
• Analyze biomechanics and musculoskeletal injury, such as whiplash
• Perform exams in weight-bearing positions
• Postoperative evaluation of movement (knee, wrist, spinal fusion etc.)
• Treatment follow-up
DDR use in Pulmonology
• Determine causes of dyspnea (shortness of breath)
• Dynamically assess bronchiectasis and pulmonary hypertension
• Differentiate restrictive versus obstructive lung disease
• Observe the interactions of lung, muscle, bone, heart and nerve
• Diaphragm excursion, respiratory effort and more
