DRAGON Classic & DRAGON Elite
The AMRAD Medical Dragon Portable Imaging systems offer lightweight portability wherever mobile imaging is required.
The ideal application for the Dragon is for use by portable care providers servicing nursing home and home health patients. Increasingly, clinics and small hospitals also use them for light x-ray procedures and they are ideal for any circumstance requiring imaging portability with easy transport.
Ease Of Use for Operator
Techniques can be selected and adjusted at the control console and at the generator or tube head. There are also five different areas on the unit to activate the collimator light. The operator never has to leave the patient’s side to use these convenient features.
The Dragon portables come in two different models, 4kW (Dragon Classic) and 8kW (Dragon Elite). The 4kw Dragon Classic version operates from single phase, 110 volt power and provides a lower radiation dose to the patient using shorter exposure times. This is possible because the Dragon has a 4kW power output with 100 mA / 125 kVp energy ranges, along with a dual focal spot x-ray tube. The 8kW Dragon Elite requires 220 volt power.
If the Dragon detects undesired incoming voltage drops when operating with poor electricity lines, it will automatically derate itself to prevent possible electronic failures due to insufficient incoming power.
At 118 pounds, the Dragon is one of the lightest portable systems on the market. Its low weight, along with the long rails on the rear of the unit, make it much easier for the operator to move in and out of a vehicle between patient visits.
Convert To DR System
Users also have the ability to convert the Dragon Portable unit from analog to digital with the digital retrofit kit. This optional DR Retrofit Kit mounts to both the touch screen and membrane console unit and allows for conversion from analog to DR Ready in one hour. Ask about our DR options or add your own.
