CurveBeam's HiRise scanner allows clinicians to acquire CT scans displaying the femoral head within the acetabulum in a standing position. When reconstructed into a 3D dataset, the CT scans could facilitate preoperative planning for orthopedic procedures such as knee replacement surgery, the company said.

HiRise has a gantry that elevates and lowers along a vertical track to scan the lower extremities, and tilts 90° to scan the upper extremities. It also comes with an optional table that allows patients to lie down during nonweight-bearing scanning, when necessary.
