The system allows radiologists and orthopedic specialists to visualize 3D bone detail of the lower extremities while the patient is standing so anatomy can be assessed while in the "weight-bearing" or "load-bearing" position. The LineUp scanner can perform bilateral scans of entire legs from below the heel to above the knee, the firm said. In addition, accessories permit scanning of the hand, wrist, and elbow.

The LineUp system can be plugged into a standard wall outlet and has minimal shielding requirements.
