Barry University’s School of Podiatric Medicine is excited to announce that it is the first medical school in the southeastern U.S. and only the second podiatric medical school in the country to acquire the PedCAT machine.
This revolutionary technology provides 3D, weight-bearing CT scans of the foot and ankle, which gives our podiatric physicians the information they need to assess the biomechanical spatial relationships and alignment of the lower extremities. There are many strengths of CT over MRI, which School of Podiatric Medicine physicians can now take advantage of. Students will benefit from learning to use this state-of-the-art technology as well.
“The images are absolutely amazing! I can’t say enough about how this is already helping us decide on treatments for our patients, said Dr. Albert Armstrong, dean and a podiatric physician expert in lower extremity. “What a great investment for our school, our students, our clinics, and most importantly, our patients!”
The PedCat machine is housed at the School of Podiatric Medicine’s Foot and Ankle Center Clinic at Mercy Hospital in Coconut Grove.
