Philips landed FDA clearance for its brand new ProxiDiagnost N90 Digital Radiography-Fluoroscopy (DRF) system. The combined system can be used for nearby fluoroscopy and digital X-ray radiography, allowing an installation to be utilized for many use cases that would normally require two separate systems.
The firm touts the image quality of the ProxiDiagnost N90, which uses a high-end flat detector and features the “UNIQUE” image processing technology. UNIQUE helps to stabilize and harmonize all the captured shots in a given sequence of frames, avoiding repeat exposures that are often needed to generate a diagnostically useful image.
Nearby fluoroscopy lets clinicians work directly with the patient and the Philips Eleva user interface, already common on other Philips radiography products, makes it easy to begin using the new product.
Philips believes that the system will be particularly beneficial when working with children thanks to an open-access design and its Grid-Controlled Fluoroscopy technology that produces less radiation while producing high quality images.
