Digital Chest Screening Units ProScan Series

Digital Chest X-ray Machine - ProScan

Operating principle: To register the X-ray radiation, which passed through the chest, X-ray machine ProScan uses a silicon linear detector. To make a fluorography, the detector is being moved along the chest horizontally together with a sector-shaped X-ray formed by the slit collimator. High quality images, lowest dose of investigation, convenient conditions for patients and personnel, easy requirements to X-ray room, all these parameters make this chest X-ray machine to be better solution for mass screening compare to bucky based solutions. 

Specific features of fluorography units ProScan®-2000 and ProScan®-7000

  • The silic linear detector does not need periodic maintenance. It provides spatial resolution in the patient’s plane to come to 2.2 Lp/mm for ProScan-2000  and 3.1 Lp/mm for ProScan-7000. High efficiency of registration permits obtaining a direct short with 1% contrast resolution at only 200 mR in the patient’s plane for ProScan-2000 and at 250 mR for ProScan-7000.
  • Chest X-ray machine protective cabin made of modern composite materials lowers personnel radiation exposure practically to the natural level.
  • High frequency generator is connected to 220 V ± 10% single-phase networks with resistance up to 3 Ohm. To ensure proper operation, the majority of similar units need a 380 V ± 10% three-phase electric system with maximum resistance of 0.3 Ohm.

Radiologist and assistant workstations. Both stations are equipped with the latest models of computers. Assistant workstation is equipped with a professional graphic monitor 21 inches, and that of the radiologist with the monitor 23 inches and a graphic one 21 inches. On the enquiry of a customer both versions of ProScanâ can be equipped with professional medical monochrome monitor not less than 20 inches.

The ProScan software enables the doctor to examine the images after fluorography on the big monitor, at the same time using the second one for work with the database. A professional graphical printer gives 256 gray shades and high spatial resolution on thermal paper. Herewith the image is equally informative on the monitor as well as on a hard copy. To print out periodical reports, the device is equipped with a laser office printer. The unit has special external storage element on hard disks for long-term storing of images. Capacity of storage device allows place on hard disks image archives accumulated within 10 years of unit operation. Built-in storage software provides particular reliability of saved information and absolute archive reliability in case if one of hard disks fails.

ProScan® Software meets the requirements of the DICOM 3.0. The program is being developed in close cooperation with radiologists that is why it contains not only generally accepted formalized protocols, but also the necessary forms of periodical reports. The program offers wide possibilities for processing of obtained images through special filters to detect tuberculosis.
