Cost-Effective, Robust System Ideal for Imaging Patients from Pediatric to Bariatric

CHICAGO, Nov. 26, 2007 - Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc., a leader in diagnostic and medical imaging, will preview the new RADREX™-i (pending 510k clearance) automated X-ray system at the Radiological Society of North America annual meeting held in Chicago, Nov. 25 - 30 (Booth #7130).

"Toshiba's automated RADREX-i X-ray system will help reduce overall procedure time, allowing our customers to enhance workflow and increase patient throughput," said Robert Micer, director, X-ray Vascular Business Unit, Toshiba. "The robust system includes features necessary for imaging a variety of patients, from pediatric to bariatric, making it an ideal, cost-effective X-ray system for hospitals and imaging centers."

RADREX -i's automated features include:

  • Autotracking - a feature that places the X-ray tube into the correct position for each procedure. This feature saves time by eliminating the need to manually position the X-ray tube for each patient.
  • Autocollimation - a feature that automatically centers the X-ray on the correct region of the patient's body. This new feature automates the preparation, saving crucial time for the patient and technologist, especially when several X-rays need to be performed.
  • Autoprogram select - a feature that selects the correct program for each specific X-ray procedure. Instead of manually selecting the program on the generator the technologist now can rely on Autoprogram select to show only those programs needed for a specific examination.
  • Autopark - a feature that raises the X-ray tube out of the way after the exam, giving the patient room to safely sit or stand up following the procedure.

This robust system also features a 600-pound capacity high-table, a stronger X-ray tube and an 80-kilowatt generator, making it the versatile and cost-effective choice for imaging centers and hospitals that see a variety of patients.
