Philips introduces motorized x-ray system
Philips Medical Systems launched the Practix Convenio, a mobile, motorized radiography system at the 2005 European Congress in Radiology, March 5 - 7, in Vienna, Austria.
The Philips Practix Convenio moves with the help of a motorized carriage that allows radiographers to move the system at the touch of a button. The scanner can be rotated on the spot. Running off its own power with a long battery life, Philips said the unit is ideal for intensive care applications and critically ill patients that can not be moved.
