ETMC Tyler adds advanced surgical X-ray system

From East Texas Medical Center:

ETMC Tyler now offers the latest technology to perform X-rays during surgery.

Manufactured by Fujifilm, FDR Go is a mobile digital X-ray system that displays images in seconds from the surgical environment. Images from the device are then sent wirelessly to physicians and other caregivers. "The FDR Go's digital detector is engineered to help lower dose as much as 40 percent compared to previous detector types, without compromising image quality," said Bill Tobin, director of radiology.

Designed to move easily through the operating room suite, this mobile X-ray system provides automated dose settings. Its image-processing capabilities allow technologists to send images anywhere in the hospital in a matter of seconds with outstanding diagnostic clarity.
