Locating, Defining & Quantifying Ligament Laxity
Our digitizing software system (DXD) is designed to save time and produce consistent results that correlate to AMA guidelines. The software is designed to display location, definition and quantifying of ligament laxity that any attorney, doctor and jury can easily understand and observe the evidence of damage to the spine.
There is a great demand for this type of presentation of evidence that is consistent and provides an objective way to report the injury. It is designed to provide clinical, forensic evidence of injury (or lack thereof) and to provide the appropriate documentation. This helps eliminate opinion and focus on facts.
This software works closely with the AMA Guidelines 4th Edition, 5th Edition (p. 378-79) and the 6th Edition (p. 578-79). The 6th Edition requires that objective evidence be utilized when evaluating permanent impairment.
Through overlaying of X-ray imaging, the software gives “Evidence Based Objective Impairment Ratings” to evaluate and detect based on the guidelines.
It provides anterior / posterior motion more than 3.5mm in cervical spine that is quantified on the flexion and/or extension radiographs. In addition, angular motion is utilized which can not be greater than 11 degrees in the cervical flexion view
The DXD software gives doctors objective and eveidence based documentation. This helps properly define & quantify ligament laxity and helps eliminate opinion in favor for objective results.
