Announcement: Hip-Op(c) 1.3.1 free Surgical Planning System released

Sorry for cross-posting:

** Hip-Op: a software system to plan total hip replacement surgery **
Hip-Op(c) is program originally conceived at the Istituti Ortopedici
Rizzoli and currently developed by the Bio-Computing Competence Centre.
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.

** Disclaim **
Hip-Op(c) has not been certified for clinical use, yet. Currently it is
intended for educational and investigational purposes only. Please read
carefully the license agreement for more information.
