Digital Radiology: Aiding Surgeon’s Actions in Critical Situations

A patient lies on an operating table, surrounded by a medical team where a craniotomy, or open brain surgery, is performed to remove a tumor inside the patient’s brain. Even the slightest error in the surgeon’s hand could result in irreversible damages to the patient. This is where technology steps in, providing the necessary extra steps of precaution to ensure less mistakes.

Thales, a French multinational company that designs and builds electrical systems, has designed the sharpest, most accurate radiological image detection systems.

“Thales’ detector is used in over half of radiological patient examinations worldwide”,  quotes Beatriz Matesanz, head of marketing for radiology. “However it’s not only radiologists and surgeons who benefit. Our twenty years of innovation in flat panel detectors have culminated in a 40% decrease in radiation dose for patients versus previous technologies, such as computed radiography.”

Thales’ most recent patented breakthrough product the wifi enabled Pixium® Portable 3543 DR detector, a standalone device with Embedded Patient Identification, making this machine the first of its kind. This machine allows for images to be taken at the patient’s bedside, then immediately sent for interpretation to radiologists. The Pixium detector provides greater productivity to care providers by facilitating daily work, allowing for the ease of faster diagnosis, and all around better patient care.
