12 X-ray Imaging System

     Global 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.

     The advantages of the ScanX 12 Imaging System are:

  1. The Doctor no longer has to deal with film, chemistry, processing maintenance or duplicating film.

  2. The ScanX 12 saves space by only having a 14" x 14" footprint.

  3. Full screen and split screen images can be viewed in 35 seconds from the time the plate is inserted into the ScanX 12.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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

  7. Radiographic technique is consistent with green sensitive film. Users of blue sensitive film can reduce exposure by over 50%.

     The ScanX 12 has a footprint 14" x 14" and is 28" high with a weight of 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.

     These high end x-ray image processing systems will become the standard in the field sooner than later. Feel free to call or write if you have any questions and let us know how we can help. Ask for Mark or Sue.
