Minnesota hospital installs Del DRF for flouro, general radiography
Del Global Technologies has installed its Apollo DRF system, a multi-functional table with a dynamic flat panel detector that produces full-field, high-resolution imaging for a range of radiographic and fluoroscopic examinations, at Community Memorial Hospital in Minnesota, an affiliate of Winona Health.

The Apollo DRF’s flat panel detector creates a larger field of view, higher resolution and with no distortion when compared to a traditional image intensifier. The detector acquires dynamic sequences and fluoroscopy up to 30 frames per second. The Multi-Grid feature automatically selects from two grid choices and a non-grid selection for extremity exams. Images are displayed instantly after the exposure and the technologist can immediately check the image quality, perform archiving and printing, according to Del.

The Apollo DRF’s system connectivity includes all standard DICOM 3.0 classes, such as print, store, modality worklist and MPPS for PACS integration, the company said.
