This technology is an objective diagnostic procedure that allows physicians to analyze patient's stress views while measuring Alteration of motion segment integrity (AOMSI). The DXD report writing software correlates with the AMA guidelines of permanent impairment (Learned Treatise) utilizing DXD software with demonstrative copyrighted images to correlate a patient's objective spinal geometrical injury to their ligamentous anatomy. Whether you are proving or disproving an injury, objectivity will allow you to do just that.DRE differentiators for clinical findings used to place an individual in a DRE category:(5th ed. AMA p.382) (Objective indicators #1, 2, and 3)
1. Alteration of motion segment integrity (AOMSI) documenting increased translational or angular motion
2. Radiculopathy (herniated disc)/Electrodiagnostic verification
3. Cauda Equina syndrome
There is a need for Objective evidence based reporting of patient's injury for Plaintiff and Defensive attorneys. The CMR software correlates with the AMA Guidelines 4th Edition, 5th Edition (p. 378-79) and the 6th Edition (p. 578-79) to be able to view stress view pathology. The 6th Edition requires that objective evidence be utilized when evaluating permanent impairment.
In 1987, Yochum & Rowe (p.149) ,published," Essentials of Skeletal Radiology", and described the significance of George's line. If an anterolisthesis or retrolisthesis is present, then this may be a radiographic sign of instability due to fracture, dislocation, or ligament laxity.
Flexion/extension x-rays (stress views) provide useful information on AOMSI, alteration of motion segment integrity, at a given level. - (6th ed. AMA, p. 578-79)
With our copyrighted images, we can show the correlation between dysfunction of spinal joints and correlation with sub-failure ligamentous anatomy. The stabilizing ligaments adjacent to spinal joints being stressed are:
Schedule a time to discuss and/or demonstrate how we are using this objective based technology which allows better clinical evidence, better patient outcome, and clinical excellence.
