Samsung GC70 Digital Radiography System Receives FDA 510(k) Clearance

New features support more efficient workflow, flexible configurations to accommodate patients ranging from pediatrics to seniors, and a cutting-edge imaging engine

Samsung GC70 Digital Radiography System Receives FDA 510(k) Clearance

April 27, 2017 — Samsung announces that the GC70 Digital Radiography (DR) system received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance for the U.S. market.

The GC70 creates high-quality images with cutting-edge digital enhancements such as the S-Vue imaging engine, which provides high-resolution images through adaptive filtering. Workflow enhancements include S-Align, which provides accurate alignment at multiple angles and broadcasts the detector’s degree of angulation to the tube head. This allows proper radiographic alignment when imaging gurney or wheelchair patients, resulting in superior imaging and reducing repetitive exposures all while saving time. A four-axis, individual blade control function reduces unnecessary radiation dose by enabling more precise collimation, especially useful for pediatric chest examinations. A host of streamlined operations simplify workflow to save time during diagnostic procedures. Combined, they offer the ability to enhance the quality of care while increasing patient satisfaction ratings.

The GC70 is the latest addition to Samsung’s DR portfolio, which also includes the retrofit GR40CW digital X-ray; the mobile GM60A and GM85 systems; the GU60A U-arm; the floor mounted GF50 – an affordable system for physician offices; and the ceiling-mounted GC85A.

Optional features radiology practices can order with the GC70 include:

  • SimGrid increases image quality by enhancing contrast while reducing the visual effects of scatter radiation with one click;
  • S-Guide enables technologists to see the patient displayed on screen via camera view in order to simplify the stitching settings. Manual settings for stitching range are replaced with simple clicks on the screen;
  • SmartStitching provides convenient diagnosis when viewing a stitched image of a whole spine or long bone. In addition, SmartStitching increases comfort for patients standing for a long period of consecutive shootings; and
  • Bone Suppression Imaging (BSI) improves the clarity of lung tissue by suppressing the appearance of the ribs and mediastinum in chest images, improving the ability to detect nodules.

Lightweight wireless S-Detectors that receive the X-ray signals come in multiple sizes, making the GC70 adaptable for use with patients of different ages and body habitus. Furthermore, tailored configurations of the entire system’s component set enable healthcare providers to use it across many different service lines including dedicated chest rooms, outpatient clinics and orthopedic practices. Disparate medical facilities require various options in order to satisfy diverse clinical needs and physical environments. The GC70 provides those options for efficient system customization.
