Diagnostic X-Ray Solutions to be Displayed at RSNA 2010

October 29, 2010 – At RSNA 2010, Philips will display several products designed to help physicians in digital radiography (DR) rooms.

A wireless portable detector lets users easily take trauma, orthopedic, bed and free exposures, which are instantly processed and displayed.

Additionally, several completely integrated solutions will address dedicated customer requirements within emergency environments, intensive care units and recovery rooms. Based on the Eleva concept, these new products enable smooth digital workflow with instant results in exceptional image quality. They also help to save time for quick decisions in time-critical environments.

A completely new DigitalDiagnost configuration consists of a generator, application workstation, ceiling suspended tube and the wireless portable detector will be shown. This compact configuration requires little space while offering many applications. This allows, especially in small rooms, the movement of trolleys and easier access to devices. The new system now available in the United States.

The rugged wireless portable detector with built-in handle and cable-free design enables simple maneuvering for even the most difficult anatomical views, allowing the system to be seamlessly integrated into the ER. It also helps minimize the risk of interference with life-saving equipment.

At RSNA 2010, Philips will highlight its new remote-controlled flat detector system, Juno DRF. The two-in-one solution enables customers to benefit from enhanced room utilization, experience a faster workflow, increase patient throughput and maximize return on investment. The system now available in the United States.

The two-in-one system combines everything required for digital radiography and fluoroscopy applications in one system. With its dual imaging mode and open access design, it increases room utilization and is positioned for bariatric studies. It is capable of a wide range of applications, including all common radiographic procedures, gastrointestinal studies, tomography and vascular studies.

“Our facility was very attracted to the Juno DRF system for its clinical flexibility, patient comfort, and its capability as an all digital platform to increase our department’s overall efficiency,” said Eldon Dyer, director, diagnostic imaging, Yuma Regional Medical Center, Yuma, Ariz. “The extra high-weight capacity, remote capabilities and flexible room configuration offer real advantages to our clinical team, and provide our patients the comfortable experience they expect.”

Philips also offers comprehensive DRF room solutions with two digital detectors in a vertical stand in the EasyDiagnost Eleva table. With the ability to add their choice of components and the flexibility to upgrade the system anytime, customers can create a room customized to their changing needs.

Also in 2010, the company will implement the Eleva concept for more radiography and fluoroscopy systems. The touch-screen monitor workstation is equipped with all tools and controls on a single user interface. Automatic parameter settings for every patient and high level of customization will speed up workflow. Furthermore, systems can be smoothly integrated into existing environments.
