Resumen:
A Korean R-Y-D institute specialized in ICT Bio-healthcare has developed a technology on reconstructing a 3D (three-dimensional) skeleton model of a patient´s lower limb part with two X-ray images scanned vertically. It is safer, cheaper than conventional 3D modeling based on CT (Computed Tomography) and MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging). Companies or research centres can be a potential partner under technical cooperation and research cooperation agreement.

Summary:
A Korean R-Y-D institute specialized in ICT Bio-healthcare has developed a technology on reconstructing a 3D (three-dimensional) skeleton model of a patient´s lower limb part with two X-ray images scanned vertically. It is safer, cheaper than conventional 3D modeling based on CT (Computed Tomography) and MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging). Companies or research centres can be a potential partner under technical cooperation and research cooperation agreement.
Description:
In orthopedics field, 3D (three-dimensional) skeleton modeling is highly useful for improving the accuracy of disease diagnosis, mapping out the customized surgery plans or producing educational simulation programs.

It is common to configure a 3D skeleton modeling based on data obtained from CT/MRI (Computed Tomography/Magnetic Resonance Imaging), but it is costly to obtain data, time consuming to capture the images and risky to face various hazard such as radiation exposure. In particular, MRI produces inaccurate data for the human skeleton which is the problem.

A Korean R-Y-D institute focusing on ICT Bio-healthcare has developed a technology for modeling lower limb 3D bone based on biplanar X-ray.

The technology is to construct a detailed 3D skeleton modeling of lower limb (femur, shinbone, and splint bone) through optimizing SSM (Statistical Shape Models) after matching the initial 3D model by appointing feature point using two X-ray images scanned vertically. Additionally, the technology scans the images in the stand position, thereby more accurately modeling the space between bones, an important factor to determine joint disorders. Plus, it is cheaper than CT or MRI based 3D modeling and less risky in danger of radiation exposure.

Any companies or research institutes, interested in diagnostic assistance systems, educational services of orthopedics area, can employ this technology to advance their service more accurate, cheaper, and safer. Also, the Korean R-Y-D institute is interested in applying joint R-Y-D programme(e.g. EUREKA, EUROSTARS) to develop new orthopedic diagnostic assistance system or healthcare system.
Advantages and Innovations:
- As the image is scanned in the stand position, the space between bones is more accurately modeled, which is an important factor to determine the joint disorders
- Cheaper than using CT (Computed Tomography) or MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)
- Relatively lower risk of radiation exposure than CT
- Possible to create modeling against metallic materials such as MRI
Stage of Development:
Prototype available for demonstration
IPs:
Secret Know-how,Patents granted
CommeR Statunts Regarding IPR Status:
Patent publicized in USA and South Korea
