The U.S. FDA has granted 510(k) clearance to Royal Philips’ DigitalDiagnost C90 digital radiography system. Designed to increase patient throughput and decrease the time to diagnosis, the Philips DigitalDiagnost C90 helps healthcare facilities streamline workflow, Philips officials say.
Featuring a live camera image displayed at the tube head, DigitalDiagnost highlights the anatomical area being scanned during the patient positioning process. The radiography system also incorporates the Philips Eleva user interface, a platform across a range of Philips digital radiography systems. This common user interface is now extended to the Eleva Tube Head, speeding up workflow by more than 17% per examination, according to Philips officials.
“In today’s world of value-based care, healthcare organizations are investing in imaging solutions that help them achieve the quadruple aim: improved outcomes, enhanced patient experience, increased staff satisfaction, and lowered cost of care delivery,” says Daan van Manen, business leader for diagnostic X-ray at Philips. “With solutions like the DigitalDiagnost C90, Philips is helping radiology departments get one step closer to achieving that ambition through innovation that enables higher quality images, while keeping the patient and staff experience at the forefront.”
