COMPUTERIZED RADIOGRAPHIC MENSURATION ANALYSIS (CRMA)

Get accurate imaging every time. With CRMA, you can locate your hidden injuries, expedite your healing process, and obtain a solid piece of evidence for your insurance claims.

What Is Computerized Radiographic Mensuration Analysis?

Computerized Radiographic Mensuration Analysis or CRMA, is a digitized x-ray that accurately determines the severity and location of spinal ligament injuries. 

This test uses a computer program to analyze the angles and distances between bones shown in x-rays images. It compares the patient’s spine to a normal spine to discover misalignments.

WHAT ARE HIDDEN INJURIES?

COMPUTERIZED RADIOGRAPHIC MENSURATION ANALYSIS afif-kusuma-txzpx9doVWs-unsplash__750_x_500-min
Hidden injuries are injuries that are not immediately found by the diagnostic tests usually ordered by doctors, including physicians and chiropractors.

If you have been in a traumatic accident and have major symptoms and/or restricted body functioning, then probably you've had CAT scans, X-rays and even MRIs. However, if you are not getting much progress from treatments, if symptoms persist and you feel hopeless that you might never recover, then you probably have hidden injuries.

Importance of Diagnosing Spinal Ligament Integrity with COMPUTERIZED RADIOGRAPHIC MENSURATION ANALYSIS

The human spine has three types of curves: lordotic (inward curve), kyphotic (outward curve), and scoliotic (sideways curve). Naturally, the spine has a smooth lordotic curve. However, if a spine is straightened or has an extreme curve, it might mean that you have a hidden injury.
Our backbone is made up of 33 vertebrae and has 3 main functions:
Protect and preserve your central nervous system
Support our straight posture and weight
Allow the head and body to move
It is the main component for us to be able to move and be healthy. Ligaments hold the vertebrae together, they work as a cushion preventing the tearing between adjacent vertebrae, making possible all the functions above.

How COMPUTERIZED RADIOGRAPHIC MENSURATION ANALYSIS supports the discovery of spinal injuries

Other doctors might "eyeball" a slippage of the vertebrae. The problem is, even a slippage of 1mm can mean that there's a hidden injury. So if the doctors don’t "see" that, then the hidden injury will remain hidden.
CRMA can accurately measure the slippage of the vertebrae. Thus, hidden injuries will be located sooner and proper treatment will be provided.

How does CRMA Benefit You?

After the x-rays analysis is done by the computer, a biomechanical and mensuration study will then be produced. CRMA helps locate the exact position of hidden injuries. Letting your doctor know the cause of your pain.

How Does CRMA Benefit Lawyers?

Reliable Medical Evidence

CRMA results provide the lawyer with objective medical evidence of injury. It helps in proving the patient’s condition in court. CRMA uses decades-old mensuration techniques approved by the American Medical Association, which are accepted as reliable scientific evidence in court.
