Description: TraumaCad Server is a digital templating software that allows surgeons to perform orthopedic planning. This technology enables orthopedic surgeons to preoperatively plan procedures and simulate the expected surgical outcome. Surgeons can assess key clinical measurements, size prostheses, simulate osteotomies, and visualize fracture reductions. This technology is a procedure-oriented application which includes a digital template library, a set of wizards, and measurement utilities. Additionally, this technology is designed to assist with Hip and Knee, Foot and Ankle, Deformity, Pediatric, Trauma, and Spine surgical planning.

There are three editions of TraumaCad: TraumaCad Server, TraumaCad Web (Quentry Cloud service), and TraumaCad Mobile. This entry covers TraumaCad Server only.

This technology does not utilize a database to store data. TraumaCad is installed locally on VA servers and is accessible from any workstation inside the network. TraumaCad is also integrated with VA`s Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS). According to the vendor, no data is saved or stored in TraumaCad. Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) information from VA`s PACS is used to bring studies into TraumaCad. Once the studies are pulled into TraumaCad, the surgeons will plan for their surgeries and then store those planned cases back into VA`s PACS, where they are stored as a secondary capture of the original images. Since the software uses DICOM communication, there is no encryption.

The TRM decisions in this entry only apply to technologies and versions owned, operated, managed, patched, and version-controlled by VA. This includes technologies deployed as software installations on VMs within VA-controlled cloud environments (e.g. VA Enterprise Cloud (VAEC)). Cloud services provided by the VAEC, which are listed in the VAEC Service Catalog, and those controlled and managed by an external Cloud Service Provider (i.e. SaaS) are not in the purview of the TRM. For more information on the use of cloud services and cloud-based products within VA, including VA private clouds, please see the Enterprise Cloud Solutions Office (ECSO) Portal at:

This entry covers the Desktop Edition of this technology and not any mobile versions. Please note that the implementation of mobile technology applications that operate on Mobile Operating Systems must be reviewed and approved by the Mobile Technology and Endpoint Security Engineering Team:
Technology/Standard Usage Requirements: Users must ensure their use of this technology/standard is consistent with VA policies and standards, including, but not limited to, VA Handbooks 6102 and 6500; VA Directives 6004, 6513, and 6517; and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) standards, including Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS). Users must ensure sensitive data is properly protected in compliance with all VA regulations. Prior to use of this technology, users should check with their supervisor, Information Security Officer (ISO), Facility Chief Information Officer (CIO), or local Office of Information and Technology (OI&T) representative to ensure that all actions are consistent with current VA policies and procedures prior to implementation.
Section 508 Information: This product is an accessible technology used to evaluate, repair, or report on accessibility of other tools. It is 508-compliant and needs no further assessment before use in VA. For additional information or assistance regarding Section 508, please contact the Section 508 Office at
