Siemens Healthcare highlighted three new components to AXIOM Luminos dRF at the 94th annual meeting Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago.
New functionality for AXIOM Luminos dRF, a fully digital 2-in-1 solution with a dynamic flat detector for remote controlled fluoroscopy and digital radiography, Siemens said. The enhancements include the first-to-market wireless detector, a ceiling-mounted x-ray tube and new wall stand. In combination, the enhancements increase the range of examinations the system can support.
The wireless detector brings the speed and efficiency of a flat detector to the same coverage area as a 14- x 17-inch cassette, so users can freely perform exposures anywhere in the room with images available within five seconds. The new ceiling-mounted x-ray tube enhances workflow with a color touchscreen 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. A new wall stand combines the wireless detector with classical operating features such as synchronized movement, portrait or landscape selection and left- or right-hand detector access.
