Siemens Healthcare announced today the launch of its UROSKOP Omnia workstation which utilizes a high resolution X-ray detector to enable complete urinary tract imaging with just a single exposure. In addition to reducing imaging time and radiation dose, the workstation provides doctors with easier access to the patient when compared to existing workstations, and includes a monitor which allows images from multiple sources to be displayed alongside each other.
From the press release:
The curved X-ray column offers free patient access from all four sides, which is unique in the market. Regardless of the type of examination, the urologist does not have to reposition his patient, and the anesthesiologist can always stay in place.
The HD VideoManager provides various interfaces and features to facilitate working with the system. The physician can connect his HD (High Definition) endoscopy or ultrasound device or a PACS viewer to display images side-by-side with X-ray or fluoroscopy.
