ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT01592435
First received: May 3, 2012

  Purpose
The study objective is to acquire composite images generated by the Carestream Long Length Imaging (LLI) software and demonstrate that the images stitched using the Carestream LLI software and the images stitched using a approved predicate device are acceptable for clinical use.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Radlex Scale for Diagnostic Capability Ratings - Cedara Accustitch Software (Predicate) [ Time Frame: 5 weeks after completion of data collection ]
    1-Non-diagnostic - Unacceptable for diagnostic purposes. 2-Limited - Acceptable, with some technical defect. 3-Diagnostic - Image quality that would be expected routinely when imaging cooperative patients. 4-Exemplary - Good, most adequate for diagnostic purposes.

  • Radlex Scale for Diagnostic Capability Ratings - Carestream DR LLI Software (Investigational) [ Time Frame: 5 weeks after completion of data collection ]
    1-Non-diagnostic - Unacceptable for diagnostic purposes. 2-Limited - Acceptable, with some technical defect. 3-Diagnostic - Image quality that would be expected routinely when imaging cooperative patients. 4-Exemplary - Good, most adequate for diagnostic purposes.

Pred. & Invest.-All Study Participants

Cedera AccuStitch Software is standard of care software currently used at sites.

Carestream DR LLI software is investigational software used for reconstruction.


Detailed Description:

The study consists of subject enrollment to collect images in a clinical setting, followed by a review of the stitched images by radiologists or qualified orthopedic surgeons to assess overall usability of the composite images.

This study includes clinical data collection of individual (raw and processed) and composite DR images from a Carestream device using alpha rotation to acquire the images. There is no subject involvement other than obtaining informed consent in order to use patient images and Case Record Forms (CRF), including supporting radiology reports. This study has no effect on clinical treatment and no foreseen risks to enrolled subjects.

The predicate software is currently in place at the sites. Carestream will harvest that data and reconstruct with investigational software offsite. A comparison reader study will be performed upon completion of data collection.

Please note this study is considered to be observational because there were no imaging of subject using investigational device. Subjects requiring standard of care diagnostic images were exposed using the commercially available Cedara system. The images captured on the Cedara system were then re-processed using the Carestream investigational software. Subjects gave informed consent for Carestream to reprocess their image data. They did not require any additional imaging using the investigational device.

Study Population
Subjects requiring standard of care diagnostic images were exposed using the commercially available Cedara system. The images captured on the Cedara system were then re-processed using the Carestream investigational software. Subjects gave informed consent for Carestream to reprocess their image data. They did not require any additional imaging using the investigational device.
