The medical imaging industry is grappling with significant obstacles stemming from the costly and intricate nature of X-ray technologies, along with the escalating scarcity of radiology resources worldwide. Conventional radiology solutions, including C-Arms, which are used for fluoroscopic imaging during procedures, are notorious for their suboptimal image quality and high radiation exposure. The unavailability of radiographic technology is also impeding patient outcomes worldwide. Now, the world’s first handheld dynamic digital radiographic X-ray system has changed the status quo by delivering unparalleled image sharpness and clarity in the smallest form factor, making X-ray more accessible.

Micro C, the world’s first handheld dynamic digital radiographic X-ray system, from OXOS Medical (Atlanta, GA, USA), outperforms conventional X-ray solutions in terms of speed, safety, and intelligence. With its advanced technology, this radiographic imaging device can be used at the point of care, providing exceptional sharpness and clarity while reducing radiation exposure. This means that X-ray imaging can be performed quickly and safely, wherever required.

The Micro C handheld digital radiographic X-ray system offers dynamic imaging and exceptional image quality for the distal extremities of both adults and children. From fingers to shoulders and toes to knees, it can capture high-resolution X-rays of any anatomy. As a low-dose system, it prioritizes safety for patients, providers, and staff. With cloud connectivity and on-demand image and study management, healthcare providers can access the information they need anytime, anywhere. Micro C is suitable for both clinical and surgical settings, and it has received clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for radiographic imaging and DDR of the distal extremity in adults and children.
