Aspenstate, Plano, Texas, has received FDA clearance for its portable x-ray system, AiRTouch—a lightweight (5.5 pounds), handheld tool with a high-performance battery that allows healthcare facilities to image high volumes of patients quickly. Among other applications, the device is ideal for acquiring chest x-rays to screen patients for COVID-19.

AiRTouch acquires and displays images directly on the device and wirelessly transmit to PACS via the built-in workstation. The device has been used for drive-through screening centers in South Korea.

“Our clients have noticed a dramatic increase in capacity and the ability to move patients through quickly and efficiently,” says David Lee, vice president and COO of Aspenstate. “They find that the device is very simple to use, and the integrated software and portable features allow them to work outside of the limitations of traditional x-ray solutions.”

AiRTouch was developed by Aspenstate’s parent company, Livermoretech Korea. Other applications include imaging for urgent care, ambulances, sports medicine, extremities, dental, and large- and small-animal veterinary.
