iWEbinar: Cutting Edge Technologies – to Help Avoid the Surgeon’s Knife
In recent times, research seems to be pointing to decreasing reliability and usefulness of imaging techniques, measurements and other ways of analyzing posture.
Some eminent researchers (as well as many social media commentators) suggest that, against our better judgement, imaging may be counterproductive, sending practitioners hunting down the wrong path, and encouraging patients to catastrophise over findings which are just a normal part of aging.
In this iWEbinar, Jon Bowskill & Matt Wallden will discuss:
- Linking biopsychosocial approaches with technology – and why the two are not mutually exclusive
- The importance of pelvic incidence and sagittal balance in understanding spinal curves.
- Use and application of medical imaging (eg Dynamic MRI / EOS / Aquilion CT)
- Why the benefits of imaging is dependent on an integrated team.
- Key factors missing from the standard biomechanical picture.
For allied healthcare to evolve, a healthy respect for how our offering fits into the bigger medical picture is imperative. The scope of this role within medicine, the relevance of objective testing, when to use it, and how to apply it in clinical decision making will be discussed to provide a counter-perspective to current trends.
All iWEbinar attendees are extended the invitation to attend one of the Bowskill Clinic’s multidisciplinary team meetings at no charge. Recordings of the iWEbinar are made available to all attendees for reviewing after the event. Here’s a snippet to give you a feel:
