The adoption of new and updated technology offers various benefits in medical practice and an efficient way to provide quality care and treatment to patients. Evolution of technology is very much crucial in a hospital and ambulatory surgical centers. One of the most important parameters in technological evolution is the presence of the latest high-end technology like the Digital Flat Panel Based (FPD) C-Arms. Clinical settings that have Conventional Image Intensifiers Based C-Arm can now switch to Digital Flat Panel Based C-Arm to offer better, safer, and precise results to patients. Inverting to this state-of-the-art Flat Panel Based detector can give optimum return and it overcomes the hindrances of the Traditional Image Intensifier.
Read on to know more about the benefits of switching to FPD C-arms:
Radiation Dose- Plays an Important Role in the Patient Safety
Flat Panel Detectors and Image Intensifiers differs based on their parameter of radiation dose. The direction of every medical imaging test is to provide the best results while exposing the patient to a minimum dose of radiation. Flat Panel Detector technology radiates lower doses of radiation compared to the Image Intensifiers. If the magnification mode is increased to Zoom 3 level in the Image Intensifiers unit, then the radiation dose needs to be raised by 5 terms compared to the normal field mode. In a flat panel, the same magnification will involve lower radiation frontage.
In a Flat Panel Detector, magnification does not reduce scale at all. In an Image Intensifier in order to obtain a more detailed vision, the field vision is reduced with every step of magnification.
Short, Mobile, and Space Saving
A FD C-arm is short, portable, and compact in dimensions compared to an Image Intensifier. They take less space and allow more room for team members in the operating room, and will enable the healthcare professional to maintain precise control in handling complex cases that require precise movements and measures.
Best Resolution- Superior Image Quality
The flat panel detector has a higher image resolution compared to the Image Intensifier. They produce high-quality clear images, are free from geometrical distortion, and offer a higher grayscale resolution, making various anatomical structures visible with great accuracy. One must make a note that the resolution varies from model to model, but overall, FD C-arms have the ability to produce a more consistent, high-quality digital image.
Advanced and Upgraded
Image Intensifiers are on the market for more than 5 decades and are outdated with their technical foundation. A flat panel detector is a latest and most advanced technology for better outcomes.
