The Luminos Agile dual digital fluoroscopy (Undercouch) and radiography system has been introduced into the UK by Siemens Healthcare. It has been designed to promote greater patient comfort during fluoroscopy procedures and can be expanded for radiography use when integrated with the Ysio ceiling suspended X-ray tube, wireless detector and wall stand.

With the power of dual digital fluoroscopy and radiography in one place, patient throughput rates are increased, space restraints inside the hospital are maximized and equipment is better utilized when compared with two stand-alone systems.

The Agile’s table height is the lowest in the industry for a patient-side system, adjustable from 65cm to 112cm. With horizontal and vertical transfer positions, the system accommodates a wide range of patients including children and those with mobility challenges. Furthermore, the table has a weight capacity of 272kg and a large 60cm opening between tabletop and digital imaging tower to accommodate bariatric patients. These patient-focused features help to improve the examination experience.

The 43cm by 43cm flat detector provides a large image of patient coverage when compared to traditional image intensifiers. This helps radiographers view objects without repositioning or changing the field of view, reducing overall fluoroscopy time and dose.

“A dual system means that the utilization of fluoroscopy rooms can be better managed to accommodate a broader range of patients,” states Joanne McAuliffe, AXD Product Manager at Siemens Healthcare. “When fluoroscopy functionality is not required, DR power of the Luminos Agile can be applied to make maximum use of space inside the hospital environment and allow higher patient throughput.”

The fully motorized tower, synchronized table and wall Bucky tracking further allow for improved radiography workflow and increased patient throughput. The improved OPTI Grip handle provides ergonomic tableside operation for left and right handed users.

The Siemens Combined Applications to Reduce Exposure (CARE) dose reduction program supports the Agile by decreasing radiation exposure for patients and staff without compromising image quality. The unique DiamondView Plus imaging chain allows for significantly better image quality and noise reduction, plus Digital Density Optimisation improves image contrast and detail recognition for critical regions of fluoroscopic images.
