RADspeed Pro style edition EDGE package is top-of the line General Radiography System in Shimadzu RADspeed family, which is featuring a variety of the latest cutting-edge applications like Tomosynthesis, Speed Stitch or Dual Energy Subtraction.
Tomosynthesis is a new digital imaging technology that combines cone-beam CT reconstruction with digital image processing. It allows images of any cross section to be obtained easily from volume data acquired from a single tomographic scan.
“T-smart”, Tomosynthesis-Shimadzu Metal Artifact Reduction Technology, is our latest and highest grade tomosynthesis technology evolved further to reduce the metal artifacts with iterative reconstruction method. T-smart is useful especially for the prestigious orthopedic customers who are treating a lot of joint replacements with metal implants because T-smart is effective to see the adhesion degree between bone and implant.
By taking successive high and low voltage images and applying a calculation process, soft-tissue images and bone images can be viewed separately. Shadows of nodes obscured by ribs can be rendered in soft-tissue images, or calcification can be rendered in bone images.
The newly-developed POWER GLIDETM will assist your X-ray tube positioning by motors and makes it quick and extremely light, just like “Gliding in Air”. It will reduce technologists’ burdens and increase patient throughput.
The auto-positioning feature is interlocked with the APRs. This function moves the ceiling-mounted X-ray tube support to any desired position at the press of a single button and can automatically set the X-ray tube angle. Effortless tube positioning allows the operator to focus on patient care. Naturally, manual operation is also possible to make fine positioning corrections extremely simple.
Pressing a single button on the remote control smoothly moves the ceiling-mounted X-ray tube support to preregistered positions. Movement stops immediately after the remote control button is released. Up to two remote control units can be used.
Radiography parameters can be changed beside the patient as well as on the wall-mounted console in the control room. The operator can prepare for radiography without leaving the patient. This sophisticated synchronization of the X-ray tube support and X-ray high voltage generator effectively exploits the convenience of dual consoles.
Select a protocol to suit the type of examination, and the filter in the collimator will change in accordance with the protocol. This ensures the correct filter is always automatically selected.
Remove the grid during pediatric radiography to reduce patient exposure. The type of grid inserted is displayed on the integrated console and on the LCD on the ceiling-mounted X-ray tube support.
For dose monitoring, either a Dose-Area Product Meter (DAP) or a Calculated Dose is available. The DAP measures the actual dose and displays it on the DR operator’s console. The Calculated Dose displays the expected dose, in advance of the exposure, based on the radiography parameters and the distance to the patient. After the exposure, the calculated dose, based on the actual exposure parameters, is displayed. With either option, the resulting exposure parameters and dose are displayed and can be sent to the RIS/PACS system.
Shimadzu provides a tractable cable management system along the ceiling rails that supports smooth positioning.
The FPD tray can be rotated 90 degree to change the orientation of 14 by 17 FPD.
