After a recent FDA approval, GE Healthcare is bringing a new portfolio of three compact X-ray systems to the U.S. market. The Optima XR220amx, top of the line in addition to Optima XR200amx and Brivo XR285amx, can be wheeled around directly to the patient, and the system works with GE’s FlashPad digital wireless detector. More from GE:
The digital Optima XR220amx, digital-ready Optima XR200amx and Brivo XR285amx, are more compact and powerful than their predecessors. They are user-friendly, featuring intuitive touch screens, immediate start-up capability, more storage and the high image quality required in today’s radiographic environment.
Specifically, Optima XR220amx is built to bring digital x-ray directly to the patient in the emergency room, intensive care unit and other clinical settings, while offering ergonomic improvements that can streamline transportation and patient positioning. Optima XR220amx also immediately integrates with GE’s revolutionary FlashPad* digital wireless detector.
Integrating FlashPad – a durable and adaptable wireless digital detector – with GE’s new mobile x-ray platform can impact diagnostic confidence while maintaining high image quality at low-dose levels. FlashPad also operates on a dedicated frequency spectrum using sophisticated ultra-wideband technology, thereby avoiding the congestion and competition found on many busy hospital wi-fi networks.
