Features & Benefits
Over the last few years, fluoroscopy examinations were increasingly replaced by sonography, endoscopy, computer tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging. Even though the number of fluoroscopy examinations is dwindling, clinical institutions have to offer fluoroscopy examinations. For healthcare providers, the pressing question is: How can we improve the return on investment of a potentially underutilized fluoroscopy system?
By combining remote fluoroscopy and unlimited1 radiography, our Luminos dRF Max lets you increase system utilization and save on costs for an additional system and room. It delivers high-quality, low-dose dynamic and static images on all types of patients.
Stronger synergies with a true 2-in -1 solution
In times of decreasing fluoroscopy examinations, a solution is required to secure a positive return on investment. With our 2-in-1 Luminos dRF Max, you decide how much fluoroscopy and radiography you really need – thus maximizing system and room utilization.
Sharper imaging for fast, confident diagnoses
To make reliable diagnoses, you need excellent visualization of all anatomical structures. Luminos dRF Max delivers clear images at the lowest possible dose. Plus, intelligent image acquisition and post-processing help keep examination and reading times short.
"In addition to the noticeably optimized workflows, image quality is of particular interest for us radiologists. And I have to say that compared to the previous systems, we saw a quantum leap in this regard" (Dr. med. Gunther Schutze, Private Imaging Center, Bethanien-Hospital, Frankfurt, Germany)
Safer use to protect patients and technologists
The safety of patients and staff may be especially at risk during patient transfers to and from the system. Luminos dRF Max offers smart design features and intuitive system operation to keep both patients and technologists safe.
"And let’s not forget the easy transfer and positioning of patients. Several positions are preprogrammed, and the lowest table height of 48 cm is ergonomically perfect, especially for handling disabled, heavy or wheelchair patients. The patient feels much more comfortable now. It also means no more pulling or tilting of patients – I can now focus on other patient issues." (Ben Welckenhuyzen, Ziekenhuis Oost-Limburg, The Netherlands)
