Intermed is pleased to announce that it is now offering new ALLPRO Digital
Imaging Systems to Podiatrists in conjunction with X-ray Repair & Sales of
Ocala, Florida. In particular, the ScanX® 12 is ideally suited
for use in the Office Setting.
The ScanX® 12 is a computed radiography system that replaces film
and intensifying screens. Instead, the x-ray views are created by exposing
phosphor storage plates (with the Doctor's existing x-ray machine) that are
coated with an x-ray sensitive phosphor material. The plates store latent
images after being exposed that can be scanned into a computer within 35
seconds using the ScanX®. After that, the Doctor is free to
enhance the image with the certified ScanX®
imaging software to aid in diagnosis. The refined images can then be saved
on a computer for easy retrieval and conservation of office space. The
plates are cleared by the in-line eraser after the images are down-loaded
making them ready for re-exposure.
advantages of the ScanX® 12 Imaging System are:
The Doctor no longer has to deal with
film, chemistry, processing maintenance or duplicating film.
The ScanX® 12 saves space
by only having a 14" x 14" footprint.
Full screen and split screen images can be viewed in
35 seconds from the time the plate is inserted into the ScanX®
The images can then be enhanced with
regard to brightness and contrast and linear and angular measurements can be
made of the shadowed structures with the ScanX® Software.
With network monitors in each
treatment room, these images can then be made readily available to educate patients quickly
and thoroughly with regard to diagnosis and treatment plans.
ScanX® 12 saves time and
space with easy digital file storage and archiving. The Doctor can retrieve
and review a patient's x-rays, send them to a colleague over the internet, or
burn a copy on CD/DVD at the push of a button
Radiographic technique is consistent
with green sensitive film. Users of blue sensitive film can reduce exposure
by over 50%.
12 has a footprint 14" x 14" and is 28" high with a
55 lbs. It requires a 115V, 60 Hz power source. The unit is considered a
Class 1 Laser Device that complies with FDA HHS 21 CFR 1040.10 and IEC
60825-1. Phosphor Storage Plates can be purchased in 8" x 10" and 10" 12"
sizes. The power cord and computer connector cord are included although the
software must be purchased separately.
Computer System requirements include a 2.8 GHz Pentium 4
and a Windows 2000 Service Pak 4 (or later), or Windows XP Professional
Service Pak 1a (or later) operating system. The computer should also have at
least 1 GB of RAM, a 120 GB Hard Drive and a 48x CD ROM Drive. The graphics
card or chip should have access to 32 MB of Video RAM and the computer
must have a USB port 1.1 or higher. A
Back-up Device and Surge Protector are recommended.
end x-ray image processing systems will become the standard in the field
