With Multitom Rax, we offer a Twin Robotic X-ray system that offers unparalleled positioning flexibility.
It is particularly suited for difficult exams such as trauma or orthopedic cases. Benefit from unique insights, efficient workflows, as well as comprehensive diagnosis on a single system – and set new standards in advanced musculoskeletal and trauma imaging.​

Eigenschaften & Vorteile

Precise insights through unique automation

Multitom Rax offers unparalleled precision and flexibility in positioning, allowing projections from nearly all angles and unique automated workflows that make musculoskeletal insights feasible in clinical routine. And all that while saving dose.

  • Extended1 anatomical coverage
    Benefit from unique automation with enhanced RAXortho2 acquisition modes built on the well-known SmartOrtho tilting2 technique.
  • More precision1
    Obtain accurate MSK insights through precise system and patient positioning easily. Twin Robotic arms give you more flexibility through projections from nearly all angles.
  • Right dose
    Use the right dose for every patient: Choose proven technology with dedicated low-dose and pediatric organ programs to help reduce necessary radiation, limit unnecessary radiation and minimize the risk of over-exposure.

"In particular, the fact that panoramic images can be taken, where, for example, both shoulder joints can be seen in one image under stress, is of immense advantage to us and important for traumatology in deciding whether there is a surgical indication. This is a big step forward."3 Dr. med. Thomas Paffrath, Chief physician of the section of trauma surgery, Krankenhaus der Augustinerinnen, Cologne, Germany

Efficient workflows around your patients

Advanced musculoskeletal imaging requires exact patient and system positioning, complex manual workflow steps. Multitom Rax precisely positions and aligns itself, reducing the need for unnatural patient positioning even in chal-lengingsituations like trauma cases. It supports staff and offers barrier-free patient access.

  • Faster1, robotic exam setup in clinical routine
    Faster setup is made possible by one-touch workflows and virtually unlimited, customizable organ programs that meet your specific requirements.
  • Refined automated alignment of tube and detector
    Thanks to RAXalign and RAXtrack, detector and tube align automatically and stay aligned when repositioning the system. The predictable and very compact virtual U-arm movement quickly shifts the system 90° around the patient ideal for emergency departments.
  • Less patient repositioning for enhanced care
    The system moves around the patient, so repositioning them is no longer necessary. And flexible workflows for wheelchairs, trolleys, and stretchers mean that patients need not be transferred onto the system's table at all.

„With the new version of the Multitom Rax we have noticed an improvement in speed, in the positioning of the patients, the workflows are smoother and the daily routine of the MTRA is much easier.”3 Alexandra Despineux, Chief Medical Assistant, Krankenhaus der Augustinerinnen, Cologne, Germany

Comprehensive diagnosis with multiple procedures

Thanks to its modular design, Multitom Rax can be quickly configured to suit your and your patients' demands. Starting with precision radiography, it also allows 3D bone imaging2 as well as fluoroscopic2 and interventional imaging2  for functional assessment.

  • More informed diagnosis and treatment planning4
    Acquire diagnostically relevant 3D bone imaging with our optimized Real 3D2 for improved image quality, more stable patient positioning, fewer artefacts, and streamlined, faster exams.
  • Expanded4 orthopedic capabilities
    Perform fluoroscopy2 and minor interventions2 for functional diagnosis of joints, fracture, and luxation repositioning or needle guidance in musculoskeletal procedures such as contrast and drug injections into joint spaces, as well as catheter or tube placements.
  • Enhanced flexibility4 and independence
    By offering 2D and 3D imaging on a single system along with complementary imaging results from fluoroscopic examinations, Multitom Rax gives you more independence.
