    Hip-Op(c) reads a CT dataset of the hip region and allow the surgeon to
    plan the type, the size and the position of the hip prosthesis that best
    fits into the patient anatomy. Scientists can also use the program to
    study bones morphometry or to develop computer models of intact and
    virtually operated bones. Registered users can use the program free of
    charge on an "as-is" basis and under the limitations defined by the license

    Hip-Op(c) may be useful not only to orthopaedic surgeons but also to
    biomedical researchers, biomedical educators and to medical devices
    designers. Look at the web site for more information.
