The world’s first dual-energy mobile X-ray system under development has the potential to provide increased imaging diagnostic capacity for a variety of patients, including those in critical care and for those located in rural and remote communities where stationary X-ray machines such as CT scans and MRIs are not feasible or accessible.

KA Imaging Inc. (Waterloo, ON, Canada) is creating the world’s first dual-energy mobile X-ray system using its Reveal 35C dual-energy X-ray detector. Reveal 35C is the world’s first single exposure portable dual-energy X-ray detector. Reveal is retrofittable and can be called a detector-side dual-energy upgrade: simply by replacing the detector, any existing X-ray system can be upgraded to dual-energy. With the same radiation dose as a chest X-ray, it creates three images without motion artifacts (standard digital X-ray, soft tissue and bone), giving the ability to see the lungs and soft tissue without having bones obstructing the view.

Since Reveal can replace existing X-ray detectors and provide radiologists with unobstructed front and lateral views of the lungs and bones, it can aid in the visualization of pneumonia, fractures, catheters (i.e. tubes and PICC lines), and masses with high sensitivity. The soft tissue and bone images are sharp and free of motion artifacts, thus increasing diagnostic sensitivity. Reveal is the world’s first portable dual-energy detector, and can be taken to the bedside of patients, as well as in the field.
