Samsung is bringing to the U.S. its XGEO GC8 X-ray system, the company’s first product for the digital radiography market. The system uses a TFT flat panel detector and features Samsung’s Adaptive Local Contrast Stretching (ALCOS) algorithms for image processing, and Smart Stitching that will combine multiple shots into one final rendering.
The ceiling mounted X-ray tube can be easily moved around with one hand and the detector moves right along with it, while auto park allows for a quick exam wrap up. There are also a number of button presets for common exam types, minimizing the time that clinicians have to spend on positioning the imager.
More from Samsung’s announcement:
Utilizing a Samsung TFT-based flat panel detector, the XGEO GC80 system incorporates proprietary Adaptive Local Contrast Stretching (ALCOS) software with automatic, customizable post-image processing for optimizing contrast and edge sharpness. This enables the system to deliver high image quality, fast results and provide diagnostic confidence across diverse applications.
The award-winning ergonomic design features complement the Samsung XGEO GC80’s advanced image quality. Integrating Samsung’s sophisticated robotics technology, the soft handling function allows users to reposition the THU (Tube Head Unit) with an easy movement for improved workflow and reduced fatigue. With dedicated “auto” features, including positioning, tracking and parking, the XGEO GC80 combines modern efficiency with user convenience and patient safety. Audio/visual indicators highlight each procedural step, helping to simplify and enhance patient/provider interactions.
