Biodex Highlights Surgical C-Arm Tables

Last November at McCormick Place in Chicago, Biodex Medical Systems Inc. joined more than 650 leading manufacturers, suppliers and developers of medical information and technology at the world’s largest medical equipment exhibition, RSNA Annual Meeting. The medical manufacturing company highlighted the latest enhancements to its line of surgical C-arm tables, including unique motion capabilities intended to enhance quality in medical imaging.

Available for hands-on demonstrations was the Biodex Surgical C-Arm Table 840 – a stable, accessible and vibration-free fluoroscopic table designed to keep a patient at exactly the right position and angle for a cardiovascular procedure. Features such as a stainless steel base, larger radiolucent area, exclusive SmoothGlide movement and more finite controls have been added to the table design to help ensure a clear image.

A standout capability of this table is the isocentric lateral roll motion, a movement that maintains image center during tabletop motion, minimizing image distortion. RSNA attendees were invited to the Biodex booth to view the table in action.

“We were very excited to bring this line of tables to market,” said Rich Schubert, senior product sales manager for medical imaging at Biodex. “Our goal is always to improve the imaging process for our customers and their patients. That’s what these new enhancements are all about.”
