Meridian Medical Receives FDA Clearance for Monarch Universal Digital Imager

Software converts analog mobile X-ray systems into digital systems

February 11, 2015 — Meridian Medical Systems announced it has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance to market its Meridian Monarch ultra high definition (UHD) Universal Digital Imager (UDI) with wireless detector and automatic exposure detection (AED). The approval process included the Monarch UDI 2 and the Monarch UDI 2 with wireless/AED. The digital system has been cleared to be used for both pediatric and adult radiographic imaging.

Meridian’s Monarch UDI 2 with UHD software is specified to operate as a certified component when used with the Meridian Operators Console to control the X-ray generator and other acquisition and display parameters. The Monarch UHD is used with a 20-inch (4K) acquisition console that features 3,840 x 2,560 display resolution (9.8 MP), four times that of typical acquisition stations, creating images at resolution typically seen only on high-resolution diagnostic workstations. Images are displayed twice as fast as most other workstations. It is primarily noted for its advanced workflow features, mobility, image quality and reliability.

Other features:

  • Imaging panels feature “Quad Cell Technology,” which includes direct Csl vapor deposit to increase both contrast and resolution, a reflective layer coating that increases sensitivity by 1.8 times, and moisture-proof sealing for reliability and long life, all at the lowest dose possible.
  • Meridian’s “Surefire” AED senses the X-ray and automatically acquires the image without requiring a wired connection to the generator, enabling the Monarch UHD to be used on any new or existing X-ray capable system.
  • Using the system with any analog mobile X-ray system or radiographic/RF room makes the analog system become digital immediately anytime there is an X-ray source.
  • The waterproof design of the 20-inch mobile tablet operators’ console enables it to withstand the near-constant wipedowns required to maintain 100% sanitation compliance.
