Radiography

Cervical Disc Arthroplasty RadiographThe Radiographic Research Laboratory has processed over tens of thousands of x-rays to date, highlighting the latest in spinal implants and instrumentation. The largest study, for the Charite Artificial Disc, spanned over five years and included the digitization and evaluation of approximately 20,000 x-rays. Films are tracked using an intricate multi-level system that continually crosses and checks itself, insuring the safety of all original films that enter the lab.

Validated radiographic measurement techniques are available for range of motion, disc heights, neuroforaminal heights, surface and area counts, interpedicular distances and more.
