Floor-mounted DR system Improves patient experience, eases technologist workflow and delivers accurate, consistent results

Siemens Healthineers Unveils Multix Impact Digital Radiography System at RSNA 2018

December 11, 2018 — At the 104th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), Nov. 25-30 in Chicago, Siemens Healthineers introduced the Multix Impact digital radiography (DR) system. The Multix Impact is an affordably priced, floor-mounted DR system that provides access to high-quality imaging technology. The intuitive operating system and versatile wireless detectors are designed to optimize clinical processes in radiography by improving productivity and enhancing the patient experience.

The Multix Impact is designed to be welcoming and inviting to patients. The system’s elevating, floating flat table can help the patient access the system more easily. The in-room touch user interface on the tube allows the technologist to remain at the patient’s side. And when unable to be at the patient’s side, the technologist is able to monitor and optimize positioning from the control room via the system’s patient positioning camera, potentially reducing repeat imaging and unnecessary patient dose.

The Multix Impact offers an intuitive user interface and graphical organ program selection, which can help technologists work faster and more confidently. The positioning guide display on both the in-room touch user interface and the workstation supports precise, consistent patient positioning. Advanced motorization and tracking reduce the physical exertion of technologists and help prevent repetitive stress injuries.

With the preconfigured programs of the Multix Impact, the technical factors and post-processing parameters adjust automatically for each image, each patient and each examination. This reduces the potential for errors that can lead to unnecessary patient dose and workflow interruptions. Image flavor settings allow fast customization of images, enabling the technologist to determine the optimal image impression to meet individual needs.

The Multix Impact is pending U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance and is not yet commercially available in the United States.
