FDA Clears Siemens Ysio Max Digital Radiography System

DR system helps optimize workflow across multiple systems with detectors, software enhancements

Siemens Healthcare Ysio Max DR System X-Ray RSNA 2014 Digital Radiography

February 28, 2014 — The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently granted 510(k) clearance to Siemens Healthcare for the Ysio Max, a digital radiography (DR) system offering Multiple Advances in X-ray (MAX), including time-saving user support features and X-ray detectors.

The Ysio Max DR system includes features that collectively support the user much like a personal intelligent assistant. The MAXalign feature displays the current detector angle on the system’s MAXtouch display screen, eliminating guesswork regarding the angle of the X-ray tube. With MAXalign, users can align the X-ray tube according to the detector angle shown on the screen for enhanced exam quality and consistency. MAXalign can help technologists reduce repeat exposures, saving time and resources for the health care organization as well as dose for patients.

The MAXtouch feature of the Ysio Max provides all necessary information regarding the exam on a large, color touchscreen, allowing users to quickly change all key image parameters directly on the tube. MAXtouch also generates status messages, providing guidance for the technologist and helping to increase safety by reducing the amount of time a patient spends alone in the treatment room.

The Ysio Max DR system also offers three specialized system detectors to maximize performance throughout the radiology department. The MAX wi-D detector is Siemens’ lightest 14x17” wireless detector with a handle; it weighs 6.6 lbs. and is.7” thick to help improve utilization for technologists. The new MAX Mini, a 10x14” wireless detector weighing 3.5 lbs. and with a thickness of 0.6”, is designed for orthopedics, pediatrics and trauma exams. The 17x17” MAX static detector covers virtually every patient type and is ideal for most exams.

The Maxswap feature of the Ysio Max enables use of the MAX wi-D and MAX mini detectors with multiple other Siemens radiography, fluoroscopy and urology systems, including the Luminos dRF Max, Luminos Agile Max, and UROSKOP Omnia Max systems. Maxswap allows the user to add more detectors to accommodate the growing and changing needs of the health care organization.
