The digital system is suitable for virtually all clinical radiography applications. It is easy to use, offering above all an outstanding price-performance ratio. At a price which is around one third below comparable predecessor products of Siemens, Multix Select DR is attractive to small and medium-sized hospitals in newly industrializing countries as well as to small hospitals and physicians' clinics in industrialized countries.
With the new Multix Select DR digital X-ray system, Siemens has brought to the market a costeffective solution that is suitable for virtually all radiographic examinations.
"Its outstanding priceperformance ratio means that the system appeals to customers in newly industrializing countries as well as established markets," said Dr. Bernd Ohnesorge, CEO of Siemens Healthcare's X-Ray Products business unit. So far, a fully digital X-ray system was only available in the higher-level price segment. With the Multix Select DR Siemens is now able to offer this fast, more precise and environmentally friendly technology for a price which is about one third below comparable predecessor products of Siemens. As such the Multix Select DR becomes attractive for customers who could so far only afford analog radiography systems.
The new, easy-to-use X-ray system enables physicians to acquire high-quality images rapidly. It is especially suited to clinics and practices which want to start working with digital radiography. The mobile flat detector with a size of 35x43 centimeters provides optimal coverage for all applications.
The patient table with its floating tabletop and a bucky wall stand allow a flexible range of possible examinations and ensure that work sequences are accelerated. For example, synchronous movement of the X-ray tube assembly and the detector tray facilitates positioning. Having an established and proven imaging system and imaging workplace from Siemens’ higher-end digital X-ray systems by his side, the physician is able to look at the patient’s images within a few seconds. Additionally, he has access to software functions like DiamondView Plus for enhanced image contrast, which were so far only available in high-end Siemens X-ray products.
The Multix Select DR was developed by a joint German/Chinese/Spanish team of engineers. The first systems are to be delivered presumably by fall 2011 once they have passed country-specific approvals.
