DXD is the industry's premier cervical impairment-rating reporting software.
AMA's objective measures
An abnomality, as defined by the American Medical Association, is an anterior/posterior slippage in the cervical spine exceeding 3.5mm and angulation (posterior wedging) exceeding 11 degrees. DXD diagnoses and measures these spinal abnormalities, correlates its findings with the AMA Guidelines and reports proper impairment-ratings with detailed precision. DXD coupled with the Motion
X-ray (CMR) quantify the alteration of motion segment integrity in ways standard X-rays, MRIs, and CT scans cannot.
DXD analyzes three different ROM -- neutral lateral, flexion lateral, and extension lateral. The three most vital ROM in deciding impairment. DXD takes the images from the motion X-ray, mesures the defected ligaments, set by the AMA, and
computes an evidence-based impairment-rating which is used to quantify injuries for proper diagnosis.
While the DXD works most effectively with the motion X-ray (CMR), due its advanced ROM capabilities, the DXD can be
integrated with static X-rays, as well. Without DXD, you and your clients are missing out on potenital settlement dollars.

"As an orthopedic surgeon, I am convinced that the accurate measurement of cervical instability patterns is fundamental
to full evaluation of impairments in future care requirements of cervical spine injuries"
Dr. Conrad | Board Certified, Othopedic Surgery
"The results provide the patient with information on their condition, yet still provide attorneys the raw data on segmental instability that they need to do their job. The software provides meaningful, easy to understand data on impairment ratings."
Dr. Major | Major Family Chiropractic Center
"We send the report with our inital treatment to the insurance companies. They comment
on how they have never seen such impressive reports."
