Integrated Touch Screen Console Generator

The Milestone / APEX HF X-ray generators deliver the highest performance and reliability in any radiographic environment. Choose from flexible output power configurations up to 80 kW of power (32-50 kW for stored energy versions). Select interface options like {AEC|Automatic Exposure Control: ensures consistent image brightness under a wide range of exposure conditions} control, high speed starter, {Dose Area Product Meter|Measures the output dose at the beam limiting device and is used to estimate patient dose} interface and more. Standard for the system is the 50 kW MS / APEX 650 HF STR single tube high frequency generator, in three phase or stored energy version. The Apex image acquisition system touch screen integrates the generator functions as well - no separate generator control is needed. A preview is available within seconds on the touch screen monitor the processed image can be sent to any appropriate workstation in the hospital system, or elsewhere. 

Sensitive, Full Size CsI Flat Panel

A variety of flat DR panels are available in a single or a dual detector configuration. Our 43 cm x 43 cm or 35 cm x 43 cm (17” x 17” or 14” x 17”) {CsI|The cesium iodide scintillators convert the X-ray radiation to visible light for the TFT flat panel sensors. CsI is much more sensitive than Gadox, (Gd2O2S or gadolinium oxysulfide - the other popular material) resulting is lower patient dose.} flat panel detectors operate with very low patient dose and have optimal image quality. Processed images are available within seconds. These DR detectors are fully integrated into our Apex acquisition systems for precise exposure timing and accurate calibration. The optionally fixed, tethered or wireless panel cover all needs in all standard and special examination set-ups.

Cassette Size CsI Flat Panel Detector

The cassette size detector fits into existing cassette trays making it perfect for DR upgrades and shared flat panel applications.

DICOM Compliant DX Modality

The Apex Digital Acquisition Workstation is a full-featured DX modality for both medical and veterirary radiographic rooms. The Apex integrates with the Conrol-X generators and a number of flat panel models enabling a seamless workflow with high through-put. The preprogrammed and customizable image processing profiles with a host of processing and communication modules satisfy even the most demanding requirements from small clinics to large hospitals.
