Siemens has introduced a new fluoroscopy system, the Luminos Agile. The special thing about this device is the location of the X-ray tubes: they are placed under the table and the signal can be captured with a dynamic flat panel detector. All settings can be adjusted directly on the system. The detector is 43 x 43 cm, which is larger then the conventional 33 x 33 cm images. This enables a wide coverage area like an entire abdominal region. A wireless detector and ceiling-mounted X-ray tubes are extra options to combine fluoroscopy and digital radiography in the same room.
The table can be changed in height within a range of 65 cm to 112 cm and can holds up 275 kilos. It is also possible to turn the table 90 degrees to image patients in a wheelchair.
