Viztek Introduces Light, Wireless DR Panel

New DR panel features innovative functionality to maximize productivity

Viztek Wireless DR Panel Liggera

May 1, 2013 — Viztek introduced the Leggera Wireless Panel, expanding the Leggera DR (direct radiography) Solutions product line to now include the lightest — 6.1 lb, ISO 4090 cassette size — wireless panel available to the market. With the addition of the Leggera Wireless Panel, hospitals and imaging centers now have access to the compact panel and its revolutionary features including storage capacity of 50 images, two removable batteries to maximize productivity and uptime while providing breakthrough reliability in image storage and back-up.

An ISO 4090 cassette that is easily adopted and used in any sized facility, the Leggera DR is the first wireless panel available that can safely store 50-images within the panel. This exceptional storage capability is beneficial in the case of any facility-wide system problems where image preservation is imperative and creates an easy transition for non-departmental usage. Further, it comes standard with two removable batteries, and a charging station that holds up to three batteries. Users are able to charge alternate batteries while still using the panel eliminating any need for the system to experience downtime caused by a charging period.

The Leggera Wireless Panel will also bring unparalleled productivity benefits to the market with its innovative list of technology advancements, including:

  • Gyro capability. Time is saved by eliminating the need to configure orientation, that leads to the minimization of error and the need for image re-takes
  • Passive-trigger technology. Takes any X-ray source and panel will turn on and allow X-ray without any interface between the generator to the panel
  • Auto-sleep feature. Further preserves the 8-hour battery life

 

The Leggera DR is U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved and currently available for sale.
