A shift in digital radiology
- Lodox is the only digital radiography system that provides a single (non-stitched), high-resolution radiographic image of the entire body (up to 1.8m / 6ft body length). Lodox facilitates a complete skeletal survey from any orientation, in one image, regardless of subject size.
- Lodox visualises skeletal, chest and pelvic pathologies ‘all-in-one’, and more accurately than conventional X-ray imaging.
- The full-body image replaces a number of smaller views, making it easier to locate injuries, foreign objects and identifying features.
- X-ray image of the entire body in 13 seconds.
- A full-body imaging study in two planes in 3 – 5 minutes.
- Rapid operation reduces the time taken for a skeletal survey, making the Lodox system ideal for the examination of bodies.
- Radiation scatter is dramatically minimised by the Lodox beam and detector configuration.
- This makes it safer for surrounding and operating staff.
- Large format images reduce the need for retakes resulting from imprecise radiography.
- Straightforward operation makes Lodox easy for staff to use.
..miss nothing. faster
- Helpful in the diagnosis of non-accidental injuries in children and cause-of-death determination in cases of sudden unexpected death in infants.
- Superior to conventional radiographs for visualisation of the main bronchi for the detection of TB and lung pathology.
- Particularly useful in determining the presence of foreign bodies such as bullets.
The open C-arm design improves accessibility for imaging largersubjects, and the load-bearing design of the bariatric trolley permits masses of up to 300 kg (660lbs). The unique, focused fan-beam of the linear slit-scanning technology improves image quality by reducing large-body scatter degradation.
Lodox images have a pixel size of 60 μm, up to 5 line-pairs/mm of spatial resolution and more than 16000 grey levels of contrast resolution, supported by patented image-processing and viewing software.
Lodox high-definition, high-contrast images have been found to be equal to, or better than, conventional X-ray images for the detection of thoracic, pulmonary, mediastinal, pelvic and peripheral injuries.8
