Radiographic/Fluoroscopy System Offers Patient-Side Controls

The Luminos Agile fluoroscopy/radiography system is the first patient-side controlled system with dynamic flat-panel detector technology, height-adjustable table and true dual-use capability for fluoroscopy and radiography. The Luminos Agile’s dynamic flat-panel detector provides an image that is up to 177 percent larger and allows for better patient coverage than a 13-inch image intensifier, enabling users to view objects without repositioning or changing the field of view, and reducing overall fluoroscopy time and dose.
