How KA Imaging’s Dual-energy Solution Sets a New Industry Standard

Reveal™ 35C is the world’s first and only single exposure, portable, digital dual-energy subtraction (DES) X-ray detector that overcomes previous DES technical limitations. This detector raised the possibility of a DES retrofit in existing digital X-ray rooms. The portability of a single exposure DES detector also allows for point-of-care high-quality diagnostic imaging to increase access in underserved regions and low mobility patients.

Dual-energy has been proven to detect more solitary pulmonary nodules, pneumothorax, pneumonia, tuberculosis, and coronary calcium than conventional analog or digital chest X-rays. This early detection enables faster/improved patient outcomes, additional hospital revenue, cost savings to healthcare systems, and reduces exposure to malpractice claims. Additionally, the Reveal™ 35C has 20X less radiation compared to CT scans and reduces radiologist reading time for X-rays by 30% at 10X lower purchase and operating costs than traditional CT scans.

 

Reveal™ 35C is available in Canada and the USA. Contact us for inquiries and availability in other countries.
