A new mobile imaging table for vascular surgery and endovascular procedures provides unique features, including maintaining focused anatomy centered even when rolled laterally.
The Image Diagnostics (IDI; Fitchburg, MA, USA) Aspect ISR G3 Mobile Imaging Table provides an affordable state-of-the-art solution for C-Arm imaging, with a four-way floating tabletop motion that can effortlessly provide such movements as panning, up and down motion, the Trendelenberg position, and lateral and isocentric roll. The table is operated via a mounted panning hand controller with automatic lock functions that effectively eliminate inadvertent float release by patients or staff during procedures.
When used in conjunction with a motorized flat detector C-Arm, surgeons have direct control over the movement of both devices at their fingertips. The float top carbon fiber table has 32” of longitudinal travel and a large artifact free imaging area on a small and compact efficient platform. Nominal bilateral rail sections optimize oblique imaging with a rail artifact. It also includes integrated mini-rails, allowing for an articulated headrest or peripheral extension to be attached, thus providing a maximum of 203 cm of artifact free imaging area.
The table height, which includes a 5 cm low attenuation pad, can be raised to 115 cm, while still maintaining an extremely low tongue profile, thus minimizing the object image receptor distance (OID) and helping to maximize image quality. Onboard batteries provide instant-on capabilities for all table functions in the event of a power outage. In addition, the ISR is free from the complexities of hydraulic systems and pneumatic drive systems, making it extremely reliable and economical, since costly maintenance and seal replacements are avoided.
“Image Diagnostics is dedicated to offering superior mobile imaging products and delivering the highest level of innovation, quality, versatility, and safety with all of our products,” said Mark Hansen, director of business development at IDI. “Our ISR G3 sets a new standard in imaging tables, offering the ultimate in functionality and ergonomics along with minimum maintenance and superior patient safety.”
