Hospitals and Imaging Centers need to maximize productivity and efficiency. The flexibility of the new Aptitude and Aptitude Plus Fluoroscopy systems allow facilities to provide radiographic exams and fluoroscopy exams with the same unit. Gone are the days of having a fluoroscopy system that is only used 30% of the time. The ALL-NEW Aptitude and Aptitude + combines the best of both worlds to improve productivity, increase patient throughput with increased efficiency and maximize your imaging dollar.
One and Done
Perfect for hospitals, IHN outpatient facilities, large imaging centers and radiology practices, the new Aptitude and Aptitude + R/F is ideal for environments with limited spaces. An all-in-one design with electronics located with the table, means no external cabinets, thus reducing the overall room size. In the past, two radiographic rooms were required to achieve the same level of productivity that the Aptitude and Aptitude + R/F now combine as one. Having a singular unit that can perform both fluoroscopy and radiographic exams means that only one room is required which frees up space. Utilizing the power of Trixell Dynamic flat panel detector, Fluoroscopy can be performed with up to 30 FPS. Capability of a 72” SID means your upright chest radiographic exams can be performed right at the table, eliminating the need for an external wallstand. These features allow the user to accomplish a vast range of procedures to be conducted directly from the radiology department.
