Technology Spotlight: C-arms

A C-arm is an imaging device based on traditional X-ray technology. Its name is derived from the C-shaped arm that connects the X-ray source to the X-ray detector to make one machine. C-arm technology has advanced considerably within the last decade, making it an even more valuable tool to have in your operating room

Find the Right Specialized Imaging Device for your Clinic

All imaging device are useful, but some devices were created to fulfill specific needs. Take ultrasound devices and c-arm devices, for example. Both devices allow us to “see” inside of the human body, but an ultrasound device requires a skilled ultrasound technician (a sonographer) and emits a high-frequency pulse that’s most useful for imaging soft tissues, while a C-arm device uses X-ray technology that most useful for imaging bones and internal organs, even during operations.

Machine Learning in Radiology

Machine learning is a subset of artificial intelligence (AI). It gives software the ability to learn from past experiences and to incorporate what it has learned into new data processing methods. The purpose of machine learning is to enable software to evolve without needing someone to provide “hand holding” through every new process.

5 Reasons Digital Radiography Outperforms Computed Radiography

If you are in the market for a new X-ray system, you’re looking for a system that will meet your needs, fit your budget, and operate efficiently, and inspire your confidence (of course, it wouldn’t hurt if it performed above those expectations, too). During your search, you will inevitably come across two popular models: the conventional computed radiography systems and the newer digital radiography systems.
