This is a quick walk-around video showing the Siemens Healthineers Multix Impact digital radiography (DR) room X-ray system at RSNA 2018. The system offers an intuitive operating system to help improve productivity. The in-room touch user interface on the tube allows the technologist to remain at the patient’s side. And when unable to be at the patient’s side, the technologist is able to monitor and optimize positioning from the control room via the system’s patient positioning camera, potentially reducing repeat imaging and unnecessary patient dose. Lights at the top of the X-ray system automatically indicate it the patient anatomy is aligned properly with the exam type the technologist chose for optimal imaging to reduce the need for retakes.
The Multix Impact also offers an intuitive user interface and graphical organ program selection. The positioning guide display on both the in-room touch user interface and the workstation supports precise, consistent patient positioning. Advanced motorization and tracking reduce the physical exertion of technologists and help prevent repetitive stress injuries.
