October 18, 2021 — Long Island Jewish Valley Stream of Valley Stream, N.Y., recently became the first healthcare institution in the United States to install the LUMINOS Lotus Max, a premium 2-in-1 remote-controlled imaging system from Siemens Healthineers that seamlessly integrates fluoroscopy and radiography for increased productivity and optimized clinical operations.
Designed to be operated remotely from a control room, the LUMINOS Lotus Max also can be used tableside via an optional second remote control console. It offers versatility in a wide range of clinical examinations and among diverse patient types, combining radiographic and fluoroscopic imaging with orthopedic studies such as long-leg or full-spine examinations and basic interventions. The system is highly automated for easy maneuvering, and it automatically encrypts all images and patient data. Options include a wireless footswitch; an Enhanced Care Package of software features to help minimize patient dose, improve workflow, and optimize image quality; and a multi-color MoodLight feature.
“The LUMINOS Lotus Max has quickly become the system of choice for our radiologists and technologists,“ said Sean Maraj, MBA, RT(R), Director of Imaging Services at Long Island Jewish Valley Stream Hospital. “The system has allowed us to seamlessly improve upon the high level of imaging services and patient care we provide at LIJ Valley Stream.”
“With this first U.S. installation of the LUMINOS Lotus Max, Long Island Jewish Valley Stream has the opportunity to realize more efficient workflows and enjoy greater system utilization in fluoroscopic and radiographic examinations, while providing an improved patient experience with a high level of diagnostic confidence,” said Niral Patel, Vice President of X-ray Products at Siemens Healthineers North America.
