Siemens Healthcare has announced that the new, two-detector version of its Multix Fusion digital radiography system has received 510(k) clearance from the FDA, and the system is now available for sale in the United States. According to the company, the Multix Fusion, which was first introduced in 2012, is designed for providers with high patient throughput who need good image quality at low dose.

The two-detector Multix Fusion digital radiography system’s high level of image contrast is said to be the result of its DiamondView Plus on-board post-processing tool. According to the Siemens Healthcare announcement, the automated image processing parameter provides settings based on organ programs. The two detectors offer nearly unlimited positioning flexibility between the table and wall stand, covering routine to advanced applications such as ortho, long leg, and full spine studies.

The Siemens Healthcare website lists several other features for the Multix Fusion DR system, including the availability of analog and digital variants, which can be upgraded at the client’s convenience. The Multix Fusion reportedly has a small footprint to fit virtually all existing x-ray rooms, and affords easy and time-efficient installation. It is designed for low TCO, and has a long lifetime with low running costs.
