ExamCard purpose

This release 2.1.3 Panorama HFO ExamCard has been created to complete a cervical examination with two kinematic motions within 35 minutes.

 

Kinematic examination can show flexion, extension, rotation and lateral movements.

 

In this ExamCard we concentrated on two movements, flexion/extension and lateral movements. These movements are most useful for the diagnosis of protrusion, prolapse, trauma and rheumatoid arthritis patients.

 

ST Multipurpose L coil was used together with the Neck Positioning Device.
