Surgeons Impressed by Artificial Intelligence

Formus Labs Australian Country Manager Zoe Hart says surgeons continue to show interest in the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in pre-operative planning for total hip arthroplasty. 

“Surgeons observe the potential increases in efficiency, accuracy, and usability of a pre-operative planning suite within their practice with the support of AI. They want to understand and contribute to Formus Labs’ work to help improve the system, which in turn improves what we can provide to them,” says Zoe. 

As surgeons continue to develop their partnerships with the company, Formus Labs can further understand the surgeon’s use of Formus® Hip, and continue to find ways to ensure it is seamlessly integrated into their workflow.

Zoe adds that surgeons that are new to Formus® Hip are comparing it to their standard 2D templating processes.

“They continue to be grateful for the additional information being provided by Formus® Hip, and its level of accuracy compared to 2D implant sizing methods.”
