Siemens Multix Fusion Analog X-ray Systems Designed for Smaller Budgets

The Siemens Multix Fusion system.

March 6, 2012 — Siemens Healthcare announced that the Multix Fusion analog radiography system is commercially available in the United States. Supporting the full spectrum of routine radiography at an affordable price, the Multix Fusion features state-of-the-art components such as a height-adjustable, 660-pound capacity examination table. With a high level of reliability and attractive service contracts that help keep its operating costs comparatively low, the Multix Fusion combines innovation and price competitiveness – two components of Siemens Healthcare’s Agenda 2013 investment program.

"Siemens understands the challenges that healthcare providers are facing and is committed to being a solutions-oriented partner for our customers,” said Gerhard Schmiedel, vice president of X-ray products at Siemens Healthcare. “The Multix Fusion provides our industry with leading radiography technology that gives customers outstanding image quality and improved clinical workflow, while being sensitive to the financial challenges that are impacting healthcare facilities across the country."

Multix Fusion's X-ray tube synchronizes itself automatically to the cassette trays, enabling examinations to be performed quickly and simply. A 71-inch telescopic column allows the tube to be pulled down directly above the floor even in rooms with high ceilings, so patients do not have to climb onto the table for examinations such as foot images.

Customers can choose from several system variants, depending on their requirements. Options range from the simplest version with ceiling-mounted tube and cassette to the complete X-ray system, which includes the table and Bucky wall stand.
