VIMAGO™ HDVI PLATFORM
Vimago™ Pico - comes with a detachable carbon fiber bed, allowing for more flexibility in smaller spaces, or in high volume scenario's where you may need to image several patients back-to-back.
Our Vimago™ Pico platform features the same technology as our Vimago™ HU, including the highest spatial resolution and lowest noise of any 3D imaging modality. Recently, contrast resolution has been substantially improved to rival any conventional CT. In fact, Vimago is capable of producing calibrated (Hounsfield Units) HU as used by radiologists to quantitatively measure density.
Vimago™ Pico offers a vast array of applications and should be the primary imaging modality for:
Skulls — sinus, nasal, bulla, ears, brain, oncology, trauma
Foreign Bodies — anywhere
Thorax — lungs, heart, coughing patients, met checks
Abdomen — liver, pancreas, kidneys, adrenals, GI, shunts, oncology
Orthopedics — stifles, elbows, hips, carpus/tarsus, angular limb deformities, OCD, cartilage lesions, fractures
Spine — cervical, thoracic, lumbar
Diagnostic Fluoroscopy — coughing, swallow studies, UG studies, shunts, collapsing tracheas
Interventional Fluoroscopy – biopsies, endoscopy guidance, stents, SUB.
HDVI (High Definition Volumetric Imaging) is a
new hybrid technology in CT (Computed Tomography)
that provides unprecedented diagnostic and interventional information for clinicians.
How is Epica's HDVI Technology Different than Conventional CT?
Conventional CT samples densities within a patient’s anatomy, providing axial sliced data, leaving gaps in the data in-between each slice. The data is reconstructed using interpolation, which works by using known data to estimate values at unknown points.
After the data had been interpolated it is rendered in axial and coronal data sets. The resolution is different on each side.
HDVI technology scans a solid volume of data at a time, resulting in gapless data, with no need for interpolation. HDVI delivers a 3D map of densities with spacial resolution that is the same in all three-dimensions, with contrast equivalent to conventional CT.
This volume of data can provide resolution as small as 0.09mm which is about the thickness of a human hair. Clinicians can see the data in any angle, thickness or orientation leading to superior diagnostic confidence.
This is why HDVI is the new standard for primary imaging.
Vimago Pico™ HDVI
High-resolution images, auto brightness/contrast and frame rates from 1-16 fps. Interventional imaging quality that exceeds C-Arm systems selling for considerably more.
Any orientation of the patient may be viewed and the gantry can move over the patient during a study.
Latest platform updates include:
Digital Subtraction Angiography
Dose Reduction Technology
Vimago's built-in Digital Radiography system can be used in a single shot or scanning mode to allow an entire patient to be scanned in a single radiograph. Images may be taken at any angle.
