Siemens Healthineers Announces First U.S. Installation of Mobilett Elara Max

August 28, 2019 — UCHealth Greeley Hospital of Greeley, Colo., recently became the first healthcare facility in the United States to adopt the Mobilett Elara Max mobile X-ray system from Siemens Healthineers. The Mobilett Elara Max enables comprehensive information technology (IT) security as well as secure system integration into the hospital’s IT environment. UCHealth Greeley has installed two Mobilett Elara Max systems: a standard model and a pediatric-friendly version featuring a giraffe design.
 
In addition to a security package that helps facilities cope with cyber threats and virtual workstation technology that permits bedside access to patient information, the Mobilett Elara Max has an ergonomic design complete with an antimicrobial coating and fully integrated cables for an unobstructed front view that enables smooth, safe maneuverability. The system also provides 180-degree lateral arm movement that maximizes positioning options.
 
“UCHealth Greeley Hospital is proud to acquire these Mobilett Elara Max mobile X-ray systems, which are exceptionally user-friendly for our technologists, in addition to offering improved screen sensitivity and several new line and tube settings,” said Melody Pierson, RT(R), CRA, manager of imaging services, UCHealth Greeley Hospital.

The Breast Imaging and Reporting System (BI-RADS) was established by the American College of Radiology to help classify findings on mammography. Findings are classified based on the risk of breast cancer, with a BI-RADS 2 lesion being benign, or not cancerous, and BI-RADS 6 representing a lesion that is biopsy-proven to be malignant.
