MRI, CT & Radiation Therapy

 

CT & MRI: No artifacts

 

• The CarboFix implants allow CT & MRI scans with no/minimal artifacts caused by                      the carbon fibers implant.

 

• Clear imaging of the soft tissue surrounding the bone is advantageous in pathological cases.

Advantageous in pathologies

 

  • Carbon fiber implants have radiation properties similar to biological tissues:

- Enables precise pre-radiation CT planning

- Minimal dose perturbation effects compared to metal implants:

- No backscattering or attenuation
