Siemens Medical Solutions to Feature Versatile DR Systems

At RSNA 2007 Siemens Medical Solutions will feature the AXIOM Aristos VX Plus, a single-detector radiography system with a 17 x 17-inch flat-panel digital detector.

The system combines a large format, tilting digital flat detector with a ceiling mount x-ray tube that are specifically designed to perform chest, skull and extremity examinations. It is reportedly highly flexible even for compact imaging rooms and is expandable to accommodate scoliotic spine and long leg examinations.

Once the patient is positioned, both the flat detector and tube assembly can be set for synchronized vertical movements. For extremity and specialized angulated skull projections, the flat detector can be tilted to provide flexibility of system handling and comfortable patient positioning. This direct contact during imaging reportedly achieves excellent image quality.

Additionally, the workstation integrates all processes from registration through exposure data selection to image display and management onto a single workstation for streamlined workflow and is designed for maximum ease of use and with the syngo user interface, available on all current Siemens modalities. The AXIOM Aristos VX, Siemens delivers high image quality and up to 50 percent dose reduction compared to analog film systems, according to the company.
Also featured at RSNA, the Mobilett XP Digital portable X-ray system is mobile digital X-ray workplace with integrated FD (flat panel detector). It reportedly offers direct digital image acquisition utilizing advanced FD technology combined with powerful X-ray imaging.
