Image Diagnostics Unveils Uni Diagnost UD1 at American Urology Association Meeting

Integrated multipurpose imaging table features light and camera platform

Image Diagnostics Unveils Uni Diagnost UD1 at American Urology Association Meeting

May 24, 2017 — Image Diagnostics Inc. (IDI) recently unveiled the Uni Diagnost, the first integrated multipurpose imaging table, light and camera platform at the American Urological Association (AUA) annual meeting, May 12-17 in Boston. 

The Uni Diagnost UD1 features a configurable low attenuation urology table top, integrated examination light camera tower and monitor boom arms. The system can be installed in a day, requires no special electrical considerations and can be configured to any room, leaving the smallest footprint among other equipment options on the market, according to IDI. Providing superior bilateral clinical access and lower potential dose to staff, it increases safety while maximizing use of surgical assets (mobile C-arms) and room multi-functionality. 

Other fixed table products feature smaller monitors (19-24 inches) and large X-ray based imaging systems, according to the company. They require extensive room and power renovations with yearly service contracts, costing tens of thousands of dollars every year. The UD1 is built for maximizing the camera image and features a boom mounted 31-inch 4K ultra-high definition (UHD) monitor and other monitor options. Utilizing the C-arm as the X-ray source provides many direct and indirect benefits, including lowering the potential dose exposure to the staff because of the reversal of the X-ray source (fixed versus C-arm), superior scatter shielding concepts and utilization of OR assets when not needed (C-arm).   

Other key features and advantages include:

  • Hands free operation via foot control and laser-assisted below-table C-arm locator;
  • Boom-mounted surgical and examination light options;
  • C-Arm source under table and built in shielding system reducing radiation exposure;
  • Superior bilateral access reduces potential for back injuries during transfer; and
  • Expanded color pallet — 4K systems have the ability to produce more shades of blue, green and red. Naturally this expanded color pallet allows higher accuracy and visibility than HD inputs.
