Siemens Upgrades AXIOM Luminos dRF

November 25, 2008 - At RSNA 2008, Siemens Healthcare will introduce three new components to the AXIOM Luminos dRF, a fully-digital 2-in-1 solution with dynamic flat detector for remote controlled fluoroscopy and digital radiography that aims to help future-proof customers’ investment.

The new functionality, represented in product simulations, includes the first-to-market wireless detector, a ceiling-mounted X-ray tube and new wall stand. In combination, these enhancements increase the range of examinations the system can support.

The wireless detector provides the pinnacle in imaging excellence by bringing the speed and efficiency of a flat detector to the same coverage area as a 35 cm by 43 cm (14 inches by 17 inches) cassette so users can freely perform exposures anywhere in the room. Images are available within five seconds.

The new ceiling-mounted X-ray tube is designed to enhance workflow with a color touch screen user interface, on the tube housing, where users can control the system without having to leave the patient’s side to save time and dose. For example, based on the unique needs of the individual patient, users can select the optimal configuration for an exam such as free exposure with wireless detector instead of the wall stand or table exposure. Based on the technologist’s expertise, the touch screen offers users the ability to tailor organ programs to the specific patient thereby reducing dose

To further enhance the 2-in-1 functionality of the AXIOM Luminos dRF in radiographic applications, a new wall stand for the wireless detector will be introduced at the show. This wall stand is innovative in that it combines the wireless detector with classical operating features such as synchronized movement, portrait or landscape selection, and left- or right-hand detector access. In combination, these features bring time savings, flexibility and support for an increased range of clinical exams covering a broader range of patient needs.

The AXIOM Luminos dRF with wireless detector is a fully integrated system with intuitive user interface and complete process management from registration to image data management – all on a single integrated console. Streamlining clinical workflow in this way helps improve patient satisfaction and throughput as well as reduce costs.
