Shimadzu has released a new MobileDaRt Evolution MX8 version digital mobile X-ray system that features Shimadzu’s first telescoping support column for even more convenient drivability and improved forward visibility, a large completely flat monitor screen, a lockable Flat Panel Detector (FPD) housing compartment, an extensive selection of options, and improved operability.
Digital mobile X-ray systems are used for hospital rounds or to examine patients in emergency rooms, neonatal intensive care units, or other highly urgent medical applications. Shimadzu MobileDaRt series digital mobile X-ray systems are currently used in over 60 countries around the world, with over 3,400 units sold to date.
The newly redesigned MobileDaRt Evolution MX8 version was developed to provide users with multifaceted support based on Shimadzu’s extensive technology and track record cultivated thus far. A telescoping X-ray tube support column and other changes provide dramatically improved forward visibility during travel, while maintaining the outstanding drivability that has always been highly regarded by users. Furthermore, the design also helps improve the efficiency of hospital rounds, such as by offering a wireless hand switch and other new optional features, by improving the convenience of the monitor on the mobile unit, the area around the collimator, and FPD housing compartment, and by using higher X-ray focal point to make radiography easier for examining patients on high beds.
Shimadzu is currently promoting a concept referred to as “DR Neutral,” which is based on offering a combination of digital radiography (DR), that is matched to the operations performed within the hospital, and Shimadzu radiography systems.
