There are a number of different chiropractic tools available across multiple vendors and you will want to take into consideration which tools are important to you as you evaluate the products. For the most part, most digital x-ray systems available in the market come with some type of Chiropractic measurement tools. 

They typically cover what 80% of most chiropractors will utilize. There are other more specific Chiropractic techniques that are supported by various additional software such as NUCCA, Upper Cervical, Blair, Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP), and more. When making a chiropractic measurement, our software will allow you to save and then view in multiple rooms. There are also options to show or hide these measurements while reviewing the image with a patient. If you have a specific chiropractic toolset need, please reach out to us to discuss and we would be happy to make recommendations as to the best software for your needs.
