Siemens introduces new X-ray system to address all clinical needs in radiography

Siemens Healthcare Deutschland : 07 March, 2008  (New Product)
Siemens Healthcare has introduced its new Ysio digital radiography system that offers one digital radiography solution for virtually all clinical demands.
By selecting modules from a program, users can create their own Ysio X-ray system exactly customised to their needs. Regardless of whether medical practices and hospitals require one or two detectors, whether they want a patient table or not, or whether they need fully automated or synchronised operation – Ysio can provide an X-ray system adaptable to virtually any clinical requirement.

Patient volume and profiles, workflows, budgets, local standards and regulations are different for every medical practice and hospital. That is why Siemens Healthcare now offers Ysio, an X-ray system that can be composed according to individual needs. A configurator (a software tool) aids in determining the right system variant for a particular customer.

Independent of the variant the customer opts for, you can always recognize an Ysio system by the large colour ‘MaxTouch’ touch screen in the ceiling-mounted support.

With the newly developed touchpad the customer can control system functions such as examination and exposure parameters or the dose. If customers decide on the fully automated ceiling-mounted support, they can even choose from over 500 pre-programmable system positions. These positions make it possible to move the tube into the correct position for the desired exposure with the single push of a button. If the X-ray beam was aligned vertically, it is now automatically moved into a horizontal alignment, for example, to make an X-ray image of the lungs. As a result, there is less physical exertion for the radiological technician and the procedure in the X-ray lab is accelerated.

A highlight of Ysio is the wireless detector, wi-D. Detectors convert X-ray radiation to digital image information, and are usually firmly integrated in the examination table. The wi-D can be removed from the table and placed directly underneath or next to the patient. Exposures that are difficult or impossible to take using a permanently integrated detector, for example lateral exposures of the hip, can now be taken without difficulty.

Patients with restricted mobility can be X-rayed, for instance, without having to leave a wheelchair. In addition the image quality is also improved: Since the detector is situated close to the patient, there are virtually no distortions. The wireless detector, which transmits image data to the diagnostic workstation via WLAN, can be used just as flexibly as a cassette in analogue X-ray systems while at the same time offering all the advantages of digital X-ray imaging.
