Features include Voice Guide, which on the AccE GC85A allows common phrases, such as “Hold still” and “Take a deep breath” to be prerecorded so that they can easily be repeated and also programmed in a foreign language. Another feature of the Value Up software package includes the ability to add the AccE GM85’s and AccE GC85A’s S-Align angulations into the DICOM field or as part of the annotations, helping radiologists understand whether the image they are interpreting may have positioning changes that could affect the read.
At RSNA, the company is also showcasing software for real-time screen mirroring called Mirror View, for mobile X-ray used in trauma and the OR. It provides a real-time view of what’s going on on-screen so physicians and surgical staff don’t have to break the sterile field.

In late October, Siemens received FDA clearance for the Ysio X.pree radiography system with integrated AI. The ceiling-mounted radiography system comes equipped with myExam Companion, a user interface that automates processes and guides the technologist through the exam workflow with a 3D camera for patient positioning.
“It allows you to see depth to aid automatic thorax collimation, and will automatically raise and lower the tube head so everything is aligned,” said Martin Pesce, product manager for the X-ray products business at Siemens Healthineers North America.
The company’s new Smart Virtual Ortho application can acquire images and automatically perform stitching, eliminating the need for the technologist to set the start and end positions.
“You can place the patient on the ortho stand in front of the detector, go to the control room and adjust the collimation from the control panel,” Pesce said.
“We think this is definitely going to be the future of intelligent imaging,” Pesce said. “As a technologist myself, this is a system I would have loved to have.”
