A premium mobile digital radiography (DR) system provides exceptional mobility, user-convenience, and a high image quality to meet the demands of modern radiography.

The Samsung Electronics (Seoul, Korea) GM85 digital radiography (DR) system provides easy navigation due to its compact design, with a collapsible column that gives users clear visibility when moving the system and broadens access to smaller spaces, and an adaptive soft-driving control and front-bumper sensor to help make navigation safer. And, thanks to a narrow 555 mm width and a light 349 kg in weight, the GM85 allows easy access around tight spaces, including elevators.

A guide supports detailed device positioning, with multiple source to image distance (SID) guide settings; an S-Align function displays the detector’s angle to the tube head unit (THU) for precise alignment in order to enhance image quality; and quick-positioning functionality allows handle-free, precise body movement by simple button clicks on the THU. In addition, quick charging and a long-lasting battery improve work efficiency by powering up to 100% in only two to four hours, and going on for all day.

Other features include S-Vue, an advanced imaging engine that enhances image sharpness and clarity, and SimGrid, which provides high-quality images without the need for a conventional grid, thus reducing scatter radiation effects. Radiographers can also lower retake rates, as S-Vue eliminates alignment errors that often occur with a conventional grid. Finally, THU and line enhancement brings improved clarity of the tube and line in chest images through single on-screen click.

“Driven by Samsung’s relentless spirit of innovation, the GM85’s enhanced mobility and streamlined workflow will enable users to experience a new level of efficiency with a mobile DR system without jeopardizing image quality”, said Dongsoo Jun, president of health and medical equipment business at Samsung Electronics. “Leveraging Samsung’s deep expertise in user-friendly functions and advanced imaging technology, Samsung will take the lead in providing a spectrum of diagnostic and patient-centric tools to meet the various needs of both care provider and patient.”
