November 28, 2018 — At the 2018 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting, Nov. 25-30 in Chicago, Siemens Healthineers introduced the Mobilett Elara Max mobile digital X-ray imaging system, focused on patient and data safety. New features with the system include comprehensive information technology (IT) security, secure system integration into the hospital’s IT environment for anytime access to all relevant data, and easy-to-clean system surfaces.
Since mobile X-ray systems are used in a variety of settings, they require seamless, secure integration into the hospital’s existing IT infrastructure. The comprehensive security package of the Mobilett Elara Max helps withstand digital threats. Furthermore, virtual workstation technology enables installation of additional hospital software to permit access to necessary information directly at the patient’s bedside without impacting system safety.
Additionally, system cleaning of the Mobilett Elara Max has been simplified through a design of closed surfaces, reduced gap dimensions and fully integrated cables.
Thanks to the smooth maneuverability and flexible positioning of the X-ray arm, the system facilitates easy patient access and optimizes radiology workflows, thus increasing efficiency. Through its consistently high image quality, it provides diagnostic confidence directly at the patient’s bedside.
As a member of the Max product family, Mobilett Elara Max benefits from the advantages provided by a standardized technology platform, ranging from radiography to fluoroscopy to mobile X-ray imaging. This permits the standardization of workflows across diverse examinations. Through the common use of detectors for different platform systems, customers can achieve considerable savings using systems with the MAX Effect. Identical user interfaces shorten the training period, reduce errors, and increase efficiency.
The Mobilett Elara Max is pending U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance and is not yet commercially available in the United States.
