December 28, 2017 — At the 2017 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) Annual Meeting, Nov. 26-Dec. 1 in Chicago, Thales unveiled the latest Pixium Portable 3543 DR (digital radiography), what it calls the first truly standalone device with Embedded Patient Identification working in auto-detection mode without connection to any external device.
With the growing need for hospitals to raise their competitiveness in the context of budgetary constraints, doctors and healthcare professionals are under ever increasing pressures to maximize their time and ensure each individual patient is treated as fast as possible without compromising quality of care. This is an environment where medical technology can excel.
By working in auto-detection mode, the new Pixium Portable 3543 DR does not need to connect to any external devices, making it easier and quicker to operate than legacy portable systems. This makes for higher efficiencies since practitioners can exam multiple patients at minimal dose, anywhere in the hospital. Thanks to its optimized workflow, errors and stress are minimized and time and money is saved. Images and patient files can be uploaded directly to the radiology room, eliminating the need for numerous computed radiography (CR) cassettes and answering the growing need of reducing system total cost of ownership.
