Samsung GC85A DR system
NeuroLogica, a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., announced today that the Samsung GC85A DR system received FDA approval. This is the newest addition to Samsung’s expanding DR portfolio, which includes the mobile digital GM60A, the U-arm digital GU60A and the ceiling digital GC80.

Its S-Vue technology enhances the sharpness and clarity of the images and includes adjustable contrast presets and an auto shutter that improves consistency. It features wireless S-Detectors and a portable grid that displays the patient’s body structure clearly without increasing radiation dose.

The S-Detectors are compatible with all Samsung DR systems, so when a detector is discarded, it can be used with detectors from the other systems.

Reveal Mobi Pro integrates the Reveal 35C detector with SpectralDR technology into a modern mobile X-ray solution. Mobi Pro allows for simultaneous acquisition of conventional & dual-energy images with a single exposure. Contact us for a demo at no cost.

Its S-Align technology displays the detector’s angle to the Tube Head Unit (THU) to improve image quality during free exams. The angle can be automatically fitted when the THU and detector are within a specific radius.

Its Smart Control feature allows the operator to position the whole system by pressing one of the control panel buttons. The operator can then move a motorized, tilting receptor with a remote control from -20 to 90 degrees for the skull and hands without needing a table.

Patients no longer have to stand for long periods of time during consecutive shooting because of the Smart Stitching technology. The stitching method also provides better diagnostic clarity compared to separate images.

In January 2013, Samsung Electronics America, which is a subsidiary of Samsung Co. Ltd, acquired NeuroLogica. NeuroLogica is best known for its CT scanners, but it is also a manufacturer of ultrasound, PET, radiation therapy and MR systems.
