New Urology Workstation Cleared by FDA

July 19, 2010 – Siemens Healthcare today announced FDA clearance for the UROSKOP Omnia, its new multifunctional workstation for urology. With the workstation’s new dynamic flat detector technology, UROSKOP Omnia allows the urologist to cover the entire urinary tract – kidney, ureter, bladder (KUB) – with only one single exposure and with good image quality.

UROSKOP Omnia also features a curved X-ray column, which offers unrestricted patient access from all table sides. In additio, the integrated high definition (HD) VideoManager provides various interfaces. For example, HD endoscopy or ultrasound equipment can be connected to display images side-by-side with X-ray or fluoroscopy.

With the new UROSKOP Omnia, Siemens extends its product portfolio in the market for X-ray-based urology tables. The system allows a variety of clinical applications, such as transurethral and percutaneous urological interventions, urologic diagnostics and even gastroenterological cases.

With UROSKOP Omnia and its flat detector size of 43 x 43 square centimeters (17 x 17 square inches), it is no longer necessary to acquire and read two images to cover the complete KUB area. Thanks to the large field-of-view, it’s possible to receive a real KUB image with just one single exposure. Compared with standard image intensifier systems, this means reduced examination time and reduced dose for the patient. In addition, the system’s resolution of more than 2,800 by 2,800 pixels exceeds that of standard image intensifier systems. The high-resolution images enable the physician to zoom in without any quality loss.

UROSKOP Omnia also offers an optional, colorful MoodLight element, based on LED technology. Creating a relaxing atmosphere, it helps soothe patients and reduce fears and anxiety. The customer can select individual colors or smooth color transitions.
