Spinal imaging

Last year, the DMS Group acquired 100% of the capital of AXS Medical, a French start-up specialized in developing diagnostic tools used for spinal pathologies.


The technologies developed by AXS allow DMS-Apelem to reinforce its position in the domain of diagnostic imaging by being able to offer stereo-radiographic imaging and 3D modelisation tools particularly dedicated to orthopedic applications.

The technology BIOMOD3S combines optic information about back morphology with a classic radiographic image of the spine (stitching) to yield a 3D model of the vertebral column. The 3D model gives the practitioner a complete view of the spine for a thorough and accurate evaluation of spine deformities in pathologies such as: scoliosis, kyphosis, vertebral compression, posture and balance anomalies, and dorsopathy, to name a few.   

The added value of the BIOMOD3S is that it gives information about the rotations and twists in the spine, that are not possible to evaluate in only 2 dimensions. Until now, if 3D information was required, patients were sent to a scanner or MRI for other additional exams. In addition BIOMOD3S is a technology that allows access to this 3D information with NO ADDITIONAL DOSE, compared to a standard 2D exam.  

This technology is extremely accessible and can easily be integrated into any existing R/F or RAD suite equipped with digital full spine and long leg imaging.Biomod 3S is particularly suited for radiology, pediatrics, orthopedics and ambulatory surgery.
