Toshiba previews new automated X-ray system at RSNA

Toshiba America Medical Systems : 27 November, 2007  (New Product)
Toshiba America Medical Systems has previewed the company’s new Radrex-i automated X-ray system at the Radiological Society of North America annual meeting held in Chicago, November 2530, 2007.
'Toshiba's automated Radrex -i X-ray system will help reduce overall procedure time, allowing our customers to enhance workflow and increase patient throughput,' said Robert Micer, director, X-ray Vascular Business Unit, Toshiba. 'The robust system includes features necessary for imaging a variety of patients, from paediatric to bariatric, making it an ideal, cost-effective X-ray system for hospitals and imaging centers.'

Radrex-i's automated features include:

Autotracking a feature that provides tube and detector synchronization for table and wall stand tracking. This feature saves time by eliminating the repetitive need to manually position the X-ray tube and detector.

Autocollimation a feature that automatically selects the correct collimation size for the patient's body part. This new feature automates the preparation, saving crucial time for the patient and technologist, especially when several X-rays need to be performed.

Autoprogram select a feature that selects the correct program for each specific X-ray procedure. Instead of manually selecting the program on the generator, the technologist now can rely on Autoprogram to show only those programs needed for a specific examination.

Autopark a feature that raises the X-ray tube out of the way after the exam, giving the patient room to safely sit or stand up following the procedure. The robust system also features a 600-pound capacity high-table, a stronger X-ray tube and an 80kW generator, making it the versatile and cost-effective choice for imaging centres and hospitals that see a variety of patients.
