Canon Medical Systems USA announced that it has launched a mobile digital X-ray system designed to streamline bedside exams to help improve workflow and productivity.
The FDA 510(k)-cleared Soltus 500 has a compact design with features that promote efficiency and patient safety, without compromising image quality. They include:
- Intuitive tubehead controls, including an 8.4-in. touchscreen display and dual collimator controls for increased access and accuracy.
- Increased detector wireless range and productivity.
- Safety and security features for patient, clinician and facility, including anti-collision technologies, pressure-sensitive steering, improved maneuverability and smart ID card log-in for secure accessibility.
- Simplified detector charging and storage capacity that allows for detector charging, storage and accessories such as disinfecting wipes and protective bags.
“Today’s hospitals are challenged with productivity demands and it’s imperative that their X-ray systems are able to perform seamlessly where and when they need them,” said Jay Aboujaoude, managing director of Canon Medical Systems USA’s X-ray business unit, in a news release. “The Soltus 500 meets that need without compromising on image quality, which is made possible with the unparalleled Canon Medical detector technology that is at the heart of the system.”
Canon Medical will showcase the Soltus 500 at this year’s virtual AHRA annual meeting, Aug. 11-13, 2020.
