Royal Philips Electronics (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHI) introduced its portfolio of products designed to manage dose radiation at this year’s 95th annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago. One of the new products is the EasyDiagnost Eleva.
A single fluoroscopy room is not cost-effective in today's environment with a shift of exams to other modalities. The combination of Philips’ high-end digital vertical stand (or digital in-table detector) and the EasyDiagnost Eleva with ceiling suspension manages both high-quality digital radiography as well as fluoroscopy (DRF) applications, enabling users to perform gastro-intestinal work, as well as chest and skeletal exams, in just one room.
According to the company, features include:
- A DRF design that consists of various single features to help enable lower X-ray doses to be delivered, including pediatric fluoroscopy settings, Grid Controlled Fluoroscopy and dose measurement. This is especially relevant in the pediatric setting.
- Ease of operation, fast and offers the ability to customize protocols and techniques for individual physician preferences.
- Based on open standards so the EasyDiagnost Eleva can seamlessly integrate into any hospital network.
