Limiting radiation is critical when creating a safe operating environment for you and your patients. Managing dose comes down to a few fundamentals: time, distance and shielding. Canon Medical Systems' commitment to radiation safety results in continuous enhancements of features to help you achieve your goal of: As Low As Reasonably Achievable (ALARA).
Canon Medical Systems can help you eliminate fluoroscopy time with grid pulse fluoro, virtual collimation, and Last Image Hold (LIH) store. Utilizing these tools will help you significantly reduce radiation to the patient and staff.
During a fluoroscopy exam, it is difficult to increase your distance from scatter radiation when you have to control the spot film device and position the patient. Canon Medical Systems has developed many features designed to reduce exposure to scatter radiation.
Additional lead shielding from scatter radiation is provided by the lead curtain of the spot film device, the pantograph arm for the bucky slot opening, and our fully enclosed tub.
