July 7, 2023 — FUJIFILM Healthcare Americas Corporation, a leading provider of diagnostic and enterprise imaging solutions, today announced the U.S. launch of its latest addition to its advanced digital radiography suites, the D-EVO Suite OTCx. The overhead tube crane system is designed to deliver consistent, efficient and comfortable patient exams, enhance technologist’s workflow, deliver clinical confidence, and help to keep imaging departments running smoothly.
X-rays are the most widely used diagnostic tests, accounting for 60% of all imaging studies conducted. Radiologists and X-ray technologists are required to manage increasingly demanding caseloads while facing challenges from long hours and repetitive heavy lifting. D-EVO Suite OTCx is engineered with a focus to assist with these growing challenges. The system is a versatile, digital radiographic X-ray suite powered by Fujifilm’s latest FDR D-EVO III high-resolution, high sensitivity ultra-lightweight, glass-free detectors coupled with Dynamic Visualization, the company’s intelligent image processing. This processing uses feature recognition to automatically optimize visualization adjusting for individual variations in anatomy, resulting in exceptional images throughout the entire exposure field for a faster, more accurate diagnosis.
“At Fujifilm, we are committed to providing our customers with meaningful technologies that prioritize delivering the best possible patient care. With a consistent focus on patient comfort, technologist workflow efficiency, and of course superior image quality, we are delighted to introduce the D-EVO Suite OTCx system,” said Rob Fabrizio, director of strategic marketing, diagnostic imaging, FUJIFILM Healthcare Americas Corporation. “This new offering enables healthcare providers to benefit from the perfect mix of grab and go manual, motorized positioning and dose reduction in a system that is built to perform and last.”
To help ease patient tensions, the system features a large 10.5 inch technologist-friendly touchscreen display at the tube head, enabling techs to fine tune exam parameters while remaining at the patient’s side. The sturdy patient table features a unique four-point lift system for reliable, quiet motorized elevation, and lowers to a height of just 22″ to ensure stress-free patient transfers and adjustments.
To address the physical demands of radiologists and technologists, the system is designed to more easily accommodates patients of all sizes, featuring a smooth flat tabletop for easier transitions from gurneys and a weight capacity of up to 800 lbs. – one of the largest weight capacities on the market. The tilting version of the upright chest stand provides additional positioning flexibility for the patient, upping the patient comfort quotient and precision for standing or seated exams. All movements are precisely counterbalanced to allow light, smooth operation to minimize repetitive strain for technologists of all sizes and strengths.
