Philips Introduces Mobile C-Arm With Flat Detector

December 28, 2011 — Royal Philips Electronics recently introduced the Philips Veradius Neo mobile C-arm with flat detector. The device allows surgeons to more easily and precisely handle challenging patients and procedures.

Designed in collaboration with surgeons from around the world, Veradius Neo features a completely new C-arc geometry, specially designed to accommodate even obese patients with increased maneuverability. It also offers flexible dose management settings and advanced flat detector imaging technology to support surgeons in performing the latest image-guided surgical interventions to help improve patient care.

To simplify communication between surgical team members and make it easy to quickly move to a requested position, the Veradius Neo now has a color coded geometry. Once in the desired position, the system's advanced flat detector technology provides high-quality images. Surgeons can use these undistorted images to help place screws and other devices with precision.

Minimally invasive procedures, such as endovascular repairs, are performed by surgeons using small stents and other devices that can be difficult to visualize. To provide adequate visualization during a procedure, a mobile C-arm must be able to produce high contrast images of dynamic anatomy. The flat detector on the Veradius Neo meets these high requirements by providing high contrast digital subtraction angiography (DSA) runs and roadmap guidance.

The device’s advanced X-ray generation technology allows distortion-free visualization of dynamic anatomy in challenging procedures like transaortic aneurysm repair. During the vascular cases, the surgeon is in full control, ensuring a seamless vascular workflow.

X-ray dose remains a concern for the surgical environment for general procedures and, in particular, long, minimally invasive procedures. Philips’ system incorporates a full range of dose management features that allow low X-ray dose for lengthy minimally invasive procedures, while providing high-quality images.

Beam filters enhance the quality of X-ray while the monoblock design results in sharp pulses to support excellent dose efficiency. The easily removable grid on the flat detector makes it possible to visualize small anatomy and extremities with exceptional image quality.

Philips exhibited the Veradius Neo mobile C-arm in its booth at RSNA 2011.
