December 6, 2016 — At the 102nd Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), the separately managed healthcare business of Siemens AG presented itself for the first time under its new brand name, Siemens Healthineers. The company featured several new releases, highlighted by the Multix Fusion Max radiography system.

The Multix Fusion Max combines reliability with cost-reduction solutions for fast, high-quality imaging. Supporting a full range of clinical applications, the system can perform general X-ray, trauma and emergency, chest screening, on-table examinations and high-throughput general X-ray — providing small and medium-sized hospitals with the scalability necessary to obtain the right configuration for their patient mix.

Since the Multix Fusion Max is a member of the Max family of Siemens Healthineers radiography systems, users can efficiently swap its X-ray detectors with all other Max systems. This ability to share expensive detector technology across the entire Max portfolio can help a facility boost detector uptime and utilization within the department while having a backup solution available at any time. And the system’s MAXcharge feature prevents battery-related workflow interruptions since the MAX wi-D detector automatically charges whenever it is inside the table or its Bucky wall stand tray, as well as when it is stored inside the mobile detector holder.

The ergonomic Bucky wall stand enables a facility to image patients from head to toe while standing, sitting or on a mobile table. And when the height of the table or the Bucky wall stand is adjusted, the system’s X-ray tube tracks and synchronizes automatically to retain the correct source-imaging-distance (SID). Also, the organ programs (OGPs) on the system’s syngo FLC workstation allow users to predefine all important imaging parameters, including kV, mAs and collimation size, so facilities can cover much of their patient mix without manual adjustments.
