Multitom Rax uniquely combines patient care and productivity, bringing them to a whole new level. Its Robotic Advanced X‑ray technology (RAX) delivers a combination of high asset utilization, new clinical insights with natural Real 3D, and less patient positioning and transfers. All in one room. It’s the world’s first Twin Robotic X‑ray scanner.
Challenge: Perfect positioning for a precise evaluation
Because every patient is different, the necessary setup for the X‑ray image is always different as well.
Especially in images with implants, small, almost imperceptible adjustments are required to evaluate the joint properly. The surgeons need perfectly aligned images to decide which kind of therapy to choose for their patient.Explore the solution: Short low-dose fluoroscopy scan and its benefits.
Challenge: Two different kinds of examinations are needed for the same patient.
67-year-old male with newly diagnosed pancreatic cancer with liver metastasis.
The intervention – the implantation of the port – is performed on an angiography system. An X‑ray on a dedicated radiography system with the patient in a standing position is then required.
Usually two different systems in two different rooms are required, an angiography room and a conventional X‑ray room. A post port implantation patient often feels very unstable, yet has to be transferred to a routine radiology room for a follow-up chest X‑ray, in order to rule out a pneumothorax. In addition, a port implantation does not require the full capabilities of a high-end angiography system. A fluoroscopy system with digital subtraction angiography (DSA) functionality and very good patient access is more than sufficient for this kind of examination.Explore the solution: Port implantation with digital subtraction angiography* (DSA)
Challenge: Source of pain cannot be identified in conventional 2D X‑ray.
A 2D X‑ray image is a summary of overlapping structures into one single plane. This makes the evaluation of fine structures very difficult. Fractures can be missed.
A missed fracture leads to different kinds of problems:
Challenge: More time, more dose with multiple views
In radiography, three-dimensional anatomical regions are visualized in 2D images only – usually requiring a second 2D scan from a different direction.
If the patient can’t be turned because it causes pain, tube and detector have to be repositioned in a 90° angle.Explore the solution: Streamline workflows with robotic aligned movements
Challenge: More comfort and less risky handling
The motion concept of Multitom Rax allows virtually unlimited positioning freedom and projections. It also enables free examinations with RAXalign – without cumbersome handling with the detector.
Multitom Rax is a win-win all around: reduced risk of retakes, reduced time consumption and more comfort for the patients.Explore the value of standardization of free exposures.
