Siemens Healthcare has unveiled its new Multix Select DR digital x-ray system at the European Congress of Radiology, which is currently underway in Vienna, Austria. Siemens highlighted the new system’s ease of use, and claims that it will cost significantly less than comparable systems which are currently on the market. The company has begun seeking regulatory approval for its new system, and hopes to begin an international rollout later this year.
From the press release:
The new, easy-to-use X-ray system enables physicians to acquire high-quality images rapidly. It is especially suited to clinics and practices which want to start working with digital radiography. The mobile flat detector with a size of 35×43 centimeters provides optimal coverage for all applications. The patient table with its floating tabletop and a bucky wall stand allow a flexible range of possible examinations and ensure that work sequences are accelerated. For example, synchronous movement of the X-ray tube assembly and the detector tray facilitates positioning. Having an established and proven imaging system and imaging workplace from Siemens’ higher-end digital X-ray systems by his side, the physician is able to look at the patient’s images within a few seconds. Additionally, he has access to software functions like DiamondView Plus for enhanced image contrast, which were so far only available in high-end Siemens X-ray products.
