YSIO X.pree comes with the MyExam Companion intelligent user interface, a new 3D camera for patient positioning and advanced collimation, and a new smart image processing engine.
The MyExam Companion user interface provides proactive guidance to help technologists of any skill level navigate a radiography procedure, according to Siemens. It also combines patient data such as gender and age with other user- or machine-observable, patient-specific information to identify optimal acquisition and reconstruction parameters for each patient and radiography procedure, the company said.
The 3D camera’s virtual collimation feature was designed to enable technologists to adjust the size and shape of the X-ray beam via the touchscreen monitor and reduce the volume of irradiated patient tissue. The camera also has a smart virtual orthopedic feature designed to enable shorter preparation times for orthopedic multi-image acquisitions. Its automatic thorax collimation feature uses automated, AI-based body-part detection and collimation to accelerate thorax examination workflows by analyzing the patient’s body contour and adjusting the collimator blades in less than half a second, the company noted.
“The YSIO X.pree ceiling-mounted radiography system represents a dramatic leap forward in intelligent X-ray imaging, providing our customers with an unprecedented level of intuitive operation for consistent X-ray images and potentially faster workflow,” said Siemens Healthineers’ VP of X-ray products Niral Patel in a news release.
