Digitized podoscopy


Clinical use. It is used in pathologies of the developmental and adult age of the foot especially if accompanied by areas of considerable dyskeratosis (calluses, tilomas).

Protocol. The patient is positioned barefoot in a static standing position on the scanner for 5 seconds. Following the photograph of the sole of the foot is digitized. The software processes its image and through algorithms allows you to correlate the topographical indicators with the underlying proportional anatomical reconstruction of the foot bones. In this way it is possible to relate the areas of hyperpressure with the underlying anatomical structure affected by the pathology.

Procedures. The indicators used are structural of the foot: breech index, metatarsal, mesopodal, isthmus, heel, heel, heel half-circumference, skeletal analysis.

Execution times for the exam: 5 seconds.

Conclusions. Within 30 minutes the operator analyzes the data (indicators), prints the graphs and concludes, delivering everything to the patient in a sealed envelope.

The report written and signed by the doctor with the diagnostic conclusions, prescriptions or therapeutic or clinical in-depth recommendations (MRI, CT etc.) is delivered to the patient after the examination. If the patient is rehabilitative on the basis of disability, the project and the objective are provided as per PRI (individual rehabilitation plan).

Instrumental exams can then be repeated for normal follow-up based on the indicators to be checked over time. If, in order to check over time, the same doctor prescribes the tests to be repeated on a company request
