Siemens Multix Fusion Offers High-End X-ray Technology for Smaller Budgets

November 28, 2011 – Siemens Healthcare introduced its new radiography system, Multix Fusion, at the 97th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), November 27 to December 2 in Chicago. Multix Fusion is being developed to enable small and medium-size hospitals to deploy Siemens technology without overtaxing investment budgets. The system supports the full spectrum of clinical applications, but is much more affordable than comparable predecessor models. Multix Fusion features components that until now were offered only in the upper price segments, such as the height-adjustable, 660-pound capacity examination table. Thanks in part to its attractive service contracts, the system’s operating costs are also comparatively low.

The key components of the Multix Fusion, such as the ceiling-mounted X-ray tube and Bucky wall stand, were adopted from the high-end Ysio system. Ysio is Siemens’ radiography system for large hospitals with high patient throughput and the most demanding requirements in terms of automation, image quality and ease-of-use. The Multix Fusion, on the other hand, is most suitable for small to medium-sized hospitals and private practices that don’t want to compromise on quality, and at the same time depend on a very good price-performance ratio.

Multix Fusion has lower operating and lifecycle costs: The system needs less than 20 square meters of installation space. Thanks to a special service contract that is configured for individual customer requirements, operating costs are further reduced.

Multix Fusion’s X-ray tube synchronizes itself automatically when the detector is adjusted, enabling examinations to be performed quickly and simply. A 1.8 meter long telescopic column allows the tube to be pulled down directly above the floor, even in high-ceilinged rooms, so that patients no longer have to climb onto a stool or pedestal for foot images, for example. The ergonomic, height-adjustable examination table makes it easier to position patients and can hold up to 600 pounds. Post-processing functions that have already proven their value with the Ysio radiography system, like DiamondView Plus, boost image contrast, resulting in very good image quality.

With the Multix Fusion, customers can choose among several system variants, depending on their requirements. Options range from the simplest version with ceiling-mounted tube and mobile detector, to the complete X-ray system, including table and Bucky wall stand.
