Arcoma AB, Växjö, Sweden, has launched the new Omnera 500A X-ray system for the American market. It includes new automation features to help improve workflow and efficiency without compromising on patient care.

The Omnera 500A offers advanced performance and automation with features that put efficiency and patient safety first. The system has a new design and a new modern user interface with smart functions that simplify workflow and are designed to facilitate disinfection. The Omnera 500A also has a completely new wall stand and an updated X-ray table to improve the patient and user experience.

Arcoma launched the Omnera 500A through company partner Canon Medical Systems USA, Tustin, Calif., at the RSNA annual meeting, which was held virtually this year. 

“Today’s hospitals are challenged with productivity and workflow demands like never before, and it’s imperative that their x-ray systems be able to perform seamlessly so that they can focus on their patients,” says Jay Aboujaoude, managing director, x-ray business unit, Canon Medical Systems USA Inc. “The Omnera 500A meets that need so that technologists can produce images with exceptional image quality, made possible with the unparalleled Canon CXDI detector technology that is at the heart of the system.”

“It feels very good to launch the Omnera 500A that is desired by our partner and the market. We are convinced that the launch of the product will help us increase sales and customer satisfaction in the future,” says Linda Ungsten, product manager at Arcoma. “Canon Medical Systems USA has prepared a fantastic professional virtual booth with a big focus on the new product, which will be exciting to see during the week.”
