Radiography developer Quantum Medical Imaging has received Food and Drug Administration 510(k) clearance for an integrated C-arm called the QV-800 Universal System. The product is designed as a single-panel digital receptor for use within a hospital’s trauma unit.
The product’s integrated C-arm design permits the x-ray tube and the digital imaging receptor to remain in constant alignment, even as the arm is rotated around the patient or the source-to-image distance (SID) is varied between 40 inches to 72 inches (102 cm-180 cm), according to the Ronkonkoma, NY, company.
