Philips has unveiled its new DigitalDiagnost – ER Wireless, and is now making available the Juno DRF X-ray system in the U.S. DigitalDiagnost – ER Wireless is an X-ray system specifically meant for use in emergency rooms, recovery, and trauma applications. The Juno DRF is a digital radiography and fluoroscopy system in one package
The two-in-one system is capable of all common radiographic procedures, gastro-intestinal studies, tomography and vascular studies. Its unique Source Image Distance (SID) of 180 cm (71”) and the high table weight capacity of up to 284 kg (626 lbs), without any restrictions for movements, allows for diverse exams and patient types. An optional stitching function and vascular imaging package also expand the system’s capability. The Juno DRF has been for sale in Western Europe since January 2010.
By eliminating hardware and peripheral equipment that typically hinders access to the patient, the DigitalDiagnost – ER Wireless radiography configuration eases access to critical patients in emergency rooms (ER), trauma units and recovery bays. The rugged wireless portable detector with built-in handle and cable-free design enables simple maneuvering for even the most difficult anatomical views, allowing the system to be seamlessly integrated into the ER. The wireless portable detector also helps minimize the risk of interference with life-saving equipment.
