Siemens launches mobile DR w/ wireless detector
Siemens Healthcare is unveiling its first mobile digital x-ray system with wireless detector at UKRC 2011 in Manchester, England.

The Mobilett Mira, a motor-powered DR designed for bedside and ED imaging, processes images at the point-of-care and transmits them wirelessly to PACS, while downloading settings and updates remotely, Erlangen, Germany-based Siemens said. The system offers output power of up to 35 kW or 450 mA with exposure times as quick as one millisecond for lower radiation doses, Siemens stated, as well as an ECO-mode for operating at 25 percent reduced energy.
