South African medical engineering group Lodox Systems soon release its latest version of its digital X-ray screening technology, dubbed the Xmplar-dr, which the company says is “unrivalled” as the world’s only high-speed full-body digital scanning device.  CEO Pieter de Beer explained that the exceptional feature of the Xmplar-dr is that it takes only 13 seconds to produce an accurate full-body overview of injuries and foreign bodies in a patient, as opposed to a conventional X-ray machine, which requires several minutes and various individual X-rays to compile a full-body image.

LodoxscannerThe technology employs a proprietary linear X-ray beam, which produces fewer harmful scattered X-ray photons than a conventional wide-beam system, while generating an inherently higher image quality and resolution.  In addition, the device emits a radiation dose of 0.12 milligray – up to ten times less radiation than a conventional X-ray system.   For the full story, go to Engineering News
