"The Advent of an Advanced Mobile System Featuring Superb Image Quality and Easy Handling"
Modern medical facilities require rapid examinations under a variety of situations. This newly launched, state-of-the-art mobile system is available in two forms: the standard type, which further enhances the highly-acclaimed maneuverability and easy handling of Shimadzu mobile systems and the high powered type, with 32 kW maximum power output for superior image quality.This high-power type ensures blur-free images and short exposure times, even for children and patients who find it difficult to keep still. The system provides powerful support in medical facilities, thanks to easy positioning in restrictive locations, and outstanding operability, which allows intuitive movement of the unit by the operator. This is truly a reliable mobile system.
Brilliant Driving and Outstanding Operability
Intuitive Maneuverability Shimadzu's acclaimed power-assist function allows the operator to drive the MobileArt Evolution naturally, simply by applying light pressure to the drive handle. The unit moves just as the operator desires, achieving excellent handling when navigating around the wards. The MobileArt Evolution provides unrivaled turning and maneuverability.
Safety Alarm when Driving To avoid accidents when maneuvering the MobileArt Evolution around crowded medical facilities, an alarm can be used while in motion to alert others to the presence of the unit.
Shock-Resistant Body Design The body cover has been strengthened to prevent damage should the unit hit an object when moving around the wards. The unique soft-touch bumper automatically stops the unit when even the slightest pressure is detected. The stylish body is designed to be highly shock-resistant.
Low Driving Noise, Ensuring Quiet Hospital Environments The silent motor and enhanced unit rigidity reduce driving noise.Quiet enough for ward radiography even at night.
Adjustable Drive Handle Height During installation, the drive handle can be set at 4 cm, 6 cm, or 9 cm above the standard height. This makes ward radiography tasks more comfortable for tall operators.
Inch-Mover Buttons Press the “Inch Mover” buttons on the front of the collimator to move the unit backward and forwards. As a safety measure, any force applied to the drive handle during inch-mover operations stops the movement of the unit. In addition, an interlock prevents X-ray irradiation while the MobileArt Evolution is in motion.
All Free Button Press one of the "All Free" buttons to release all electromagnetic locks on arm rotation, arm extension, and vertical movement of the X-ray tube. An "All Free" button is located on the arm, to allow column-side positioning as well as from the collimator.
Easy Positioning The counterbalance system ensures smooth operations and accurate positioning. It easily supports fine positioning and multi-directional radiography.
Wide Imaging Range The extra-long 1200 mm maximum arm can freely rotate to provide coverage over an extended imaging range. This provides powerful support for radiography in confined spaced around beds.
New Energy Saving Collimator with a Bright Irradiation Field. LED's have been adopted as the light source to induce the irradiation field. This reduces power consumption while improving brightness levels and durability.
Great Image Quality You Can Trust
Blurring Suppressed by Short Exposure Time Images tend to become blurred due to body movements during radiography, especially with children or emergency patients who find it difficult to maintain a fixed position. The MobileArt Evolution MX7 line-up features a high-power type that reduces exposure times. The 32 kW power output delivers excellent image quality and short exposure times. This ensures sharp images with minimal blurring, even if the patient moves.
Clear Illuminated Indication of Exposure Timing Both Ready Up and Exposure statuses, which largely control the exposure timing, are indicated by the brightly illuminated, easy to read indicators. The exposure field lamp also lights up again in the Ready Up status. The exposure timing can thus be accurately confirmed at a distance from the unit, allowing the operator to instruct the patient when to hold their breath.
APR Buttons for One-Touch Setup of Radiography Conditions Simply select one of the 72 preset anatomical programs (APR) to configure the optimal radiography conditions for the corresponding radiography region, direction, and body thickness. The focal spot size can also be pre-set in the high power type. The collimator efficiently eliminates X-rays outside of the focal spot, creating sharper images.
Illuminated Hand Switch - Optional The optional illuminated hand switch lights up in different colors to show the Ready Up or Exposure status, providing a clear indication of the exposure timing.
Striving for Lower X-Ray Exposure Dose
X-Ray Exposure Dose Display The dose calculation function calculates the dose area product, based on the collimator opening size and the X-ray parameters, and displays it on the main unit. If an optional dose area product meter is included, the actual measured dose can be displayed, rather than the calculated value. In addition, if an optional distance meter is included, the distance to the patient can be displayed at the top of the collimator. (A distance meter cannot be installed if a dose area product meter is installed.)
Designed for Daily Use For your daily use, extra storage spaces are provided to store wipes, pens, markers, etc. A slit has been added for holding the cassette vertically while putting a sterile cover on the unit.
Additional Hand SwitchOptional To permit improved patient care, an extra illuminated hand switch can be installed on the front of the unit column side.)
Keyless AccessOptional Setting passwords for each operator allows them to use the system without a key.
Illuminated Hand SwitchOptional The optional illuminated hand switch lights up in different colors to show the Ready Up or Exposure status, providing a clear indication of the exposure timing.
Other Options Radiation Shield (folding type); Remote Controller; Grid Case (accommodates two grid holders - Cannot be used in combination with the large cassette box); Large Cassette Box (holds fifteen 14' x 17" cassettes)
Upgrade to FPD Mobile Sytem
Mounting an FPD Displays Images just 2 Seconds after Exposure Upgrade to a flat panel detector (FPD) to display images just two seconds after exposure. This allows any information required for the next procedure to be obtained quickly in the emergency room.
Upgrading to an FPD Eliminates the Need to Switch Cassettes and Read Imaging Plates Installing an FPD eliminates to need to switch cassettes or read imaging plates. No more burdening the patient while switching cassettes.
