TraumaCad web Residents Program

Impress your attending. Template digitally.

Brainlab is pleased to offer TraumaCad Web digital
templating free of charge to qualifying residents.



    TraumaCad automatically detects the anatomical regions in x-ray images, thus saving surgeons valuable time when planning common procedures, including: relevant measurements, implant position and sizing, and simulation of post-operative results.



    The unique TraumaCad algorithm automatically detects calibration devices such as KingMark, VoyantMark and standard ball markers. The application determines the magnification percentage of the image, thus allowing precise measurement and appropriate template selection.



    With a single click, the Auto-Hip functionality automatically positions your preferred cup and stem, performs a virtual resection, and calculates the resulting leg length and offset.

"We have used TraumaCad for several years and find it an extremely useful tool both for pre-operative planning and training. As far as hip arthroplasty is concerned, our trainees are not allowed to undertake a procedure until they have planned it using TraumaCad.
The software is user friendly, intuitive and produces a report which is an important part of the patient record. In revision surgery, pre-operative planning is further enhanced by the opportunity to plan using TraumaCad."

Mr. Philip Mitchell MBBS BSC(HONS) FRCS (TR & ORTHO) St George’s University Hospitals, UK

“Preoperative planning is crucial for a good, reproducible result. For me, TraumaCad offers that possibility.“

Prof. Dr. Heiko Graichen, Medical Director Asklepios Kliniken GmbH, Germany

"TraumaCad is an excellent planning software program. The patients and their families love seeing the before and after reports. TraumaCad is a teaching tool. Preoperative planning is paramount for resident education and surgeon preparation. It is an excellent way to work through the surgery to produce the best outcome for the patient."

Dr. Louise Reid Nichols Nemours/Alfred I. Dupont Hospital for Children, DE, USA

"We have had TraumaCad for a few years now and it has been outstanding. I remember being very impressed when the software was initially presented to us. It has more than lived up to my expectations! Firstly it is very easy to use and intuitive. It is highly accurate when used in combination with the KingMark calibration or other known marker. I have been able to template a wide array of implants when considering different options during pre-op planning. All my colleagues have been extremely happy with it and I can honestly say I have not heard of any issues with its use. I would definitely recommend TraumaCad software to any hospital updating its templating capabilities."

Mr. Lawrence O’Hara, FRCS Specialist in hip and hip revision surgery Royal Bournemouth Hospital, UK

"I have been an early adopter of TraumaCad and this was driven by necessity. Firstly, I live and work in a fairly remote area so I have to have the confidence that before I committed my patients to surgery I had the correct sized components on the shelf. Secondly, as you are aware we have multiple trays of instruments for joint replacement surgery and if I can accurately determine the component size then I only open the specific jigs for that patient and this significantly reduces the inventory for surgery. I have reached the stage where I now feel insecure if I don't have this kind of information pre operatively. We also have good radiographers who take good x-Ray's with the relevant markers. The whole process has now become easy and routine."

Dr. Pradu Dayaram, Orthopedic Surgeon West Coast District Health Board, New Zealand

"We use TraumaCad for all major reconstructive cases. The support from the TraumaCad team has been extremely valuable using the reverse planning method in digital planning. Additionally, the TraumaCad team has made a great effort providing educational activities in digital planning for young Trauma surgeons in Denmark."

Dr. Søren Kold, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon Aalborg University Hospital, Denmark

"The richness of TraumaCad’s template library, enabled the software’s rapid adoption by the entire surgical team, who quickly abandoned any other planning method. The ease of use of this software and its predictive reliability have resulted in a dramatic simplification of the planning workflow. This progress is now much appreciated by all stakeholders of the Arago Clinique, including radiologists, surgeons and operating theater staff."

Dr. Philippe Lapresle Clinique Arago, France

"TraumaCad helps me to complete an important step in my preoperative planning and provides me with a time stamped, digital record for future review."

Mr. Richard E Field PhD FRCS FRCS (Orth) St. Anthony's Hospital, UK

"I have been using TraumaCad since 2005 and I can easily say that it is an essential tool for every orthopaedic surgeon/department. It caters to trauma planning, joint arthroplasty and deformity planning. It even has clever tools for paediatric orthopods. I have seen other products in the market before buying it for our institute and I found no other planning software as comprehensive as TraumaCad."

Mr. Om Lahoti, MS(Orth), Dip N B (Orth), FRCS (Orth), FRCS (C) Kings College Hospital, UK

"We have been working with TraumaCad for three years and we have to say it has always been an effective customer/provider partnership. Engineers and technicians are prompt in their replies, available for their customers and technically efficient. We can trust them. And it is a critical point, especially in a medical environment where patients are the critical elements of this partnership. That is what makes them one of our best providers. We strongly recommend TraumaCad, without any hesitation."

Pierre-François REGAMEY, CIO Magali LABORDE, Medical Imaging Products Manager University Hospital of Lausanne, Switzerland

"Yale-New Haven Hospital uses the TraumaCad application for orthopedic templating. It is essential that we have reliable product support for the application. TraumaCad’s support team is comprised of IT professionals who specialize in specific products. When I communicate with TraumaCad’s product support, my issues are resolved and questions answered in timely fashion. "

Thomas Mooney, Clinical Imaging Analyst Yale-New Haven Hospital, CT, USA

"A workflow solution like this gives our orthopedic surgeons and fellows improved access to digital templating and enables us to spend more time with our patients, something we always strive to do."

Ramin Khorasani, MD, MPH Vice Chair, Department of Radiology; Director, Quality, Safety and Medical Imaging I.T.; and Associate Professor of Radiology, Harvard Medical School Brigham and Women’s Hospital, MA, USA

"Our orthopedic surgeons at UPMC Mercy can now digitally plan their surgeries at a time that is convenient to them, with complete access to all necessary x-rays and advanced planning tools. This allows the surgeon to more accurately predict the type and size of prosthetic implants, and is proving to be a clinical advantage."

Rasu B. Shrestha, MD, MBA, Medical Director for Digital Imaging Informatics UPMC Mercy, PA, USA

"OrthoCarolina has been in partnership with Brainlab since July 2007. During this time, their customer support and product development have been superior and sets the standard for other vendors to aspire to. Brainlab is a very integral component of OrthoCarolina’s ability to provide the highest level of orthopedic care to our patients. We look forward to continuing our partnership, upcoming innovations and outstanding customer support."

John Alexander R.T. (R) (CT) CPC, Radiology Systems Administrator OrthoCarolina, NC, USA
