Perform-X DR Chest System

Chest / chiropractic room with DX modality
Control-X Medical’s Digital Chest Radiographic Systems provide affordable, high quality, performance, durability and superior digital imaging quality. The tubestand and chest stand travel effortlessly along their respective vertical and/or horizontal tracks due to the precision bearing systems. Once positioned, they are safely locked into place with electromagnetic brakes and dual rope counterbalancing systems. Utilizing our full line of high frequency generators and the latest in digital imaging single flat panel technology, our Digital Chest Radiographic Systems meet the exacting needs of all Pulmonary Practices.



Highlights

Motorized DR Chest System with Tracking

A dual column system with motorized tube stand in slave configuration to the wall stand. After adjusting the height of the digital detector to the patient size and pressing the „GO” button, the X-ray tube drives in position centered to the digital panel. Optional motorized movement on the wall stand is available.

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. 

DR Chest Stand Designed Specifically for Chest Applications

A dedicated, motorized tube stand that centers to and follows the ches wall Bucky stand. The position can also be adjusted manually if necessary. Fixed SID configuration - the stand has no floor tracks. 

Wall Bucky for DR Chest Systems

The wall Bucky position is adjusted according to the patient height. When synchronised, the X-ray tube will find the detector center automatically.  

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.
