1.5T Zimmer knee protocol

Carlos, Kevin, MBA Zimmer • USA

Login is required to download ExamCards.

ExamCard purpose

This ExamCard includes a protocol used to prepare for knee prosthesis replacements. It is designed on Achieva 1.5T release R2.6 and also compatible with R3.2.

The purpose of this ExamCard is to obtain data regarding the 3-dimensional characteristics of the knee, as well as the relative alignment of the entire limb through the use of a unified scanning protocol. This is why the ankle and hip are also scanned.

The images are not necessarily for diagnostic interpretation, but to help prepare for the knee prosthesis.

ExamCard overview

Total scan time is: 11:36 min.

The SENSE Knee coil or the SENSE Flex coil can be used for the knee scan.
The integrated Body coil (QBC) was used for the ankle and the hip scans.

A user can decide whether or not to perform a routine knee scan along with this procotol. 


Please refer to the Zimmer Patient Specific Instruments On Line Management System for the specifics on how to execute this study.
