MobileDaRt Evolution MX8

Shimadzu's Digital Radiographic Mobile X-ray system with flat panel detectors, has exceeded 7,000 units sold worldwide, as of August 2022.

The award winning MobileDaRt Evolution is further refined into the MX8 Version featuring the collapsible column to broaden the mobile’s solutions.

Capitalizing on the merits of efficiency and high throughput, the MobileDaRt Evolution MX8 equipped with the latest wireless flat panel detectors (FPD's), broadens its applications from clinical rounds in hospitals to critical care, applications at disaster sites, as well as operating rooms and neonatal intensive care units (NICU).

A selection of light and durable wireless Flat Panel Detectors (FPD's) is available together with a selection of DR systems to meet your most demanding clinical needs.

You may share Flat Panel Detector's with multiple compatible mobile units and X-ray rooms, and you may add additional panels of different sizes to meet your changing requirements.

The high-power X-ray generator together with the wireless Flat Panel Detector's and DR image processing software ensures the best possible image quality at the lowest possible X-ray dose.

The high-quality images can be viewed on the integrated wide angle of view LCD touch display.

The comprehensive examination protocols mapped to the RIS system ensures consistent imaging and improves workflow.

The Drive Handle is height adjustable.

Each operator can easily change the height of the drive handlebar to best suite their preference, making the system even easier to manoeuvre.

In addition, the lower cover below the Flat Panel Detector storage bin is curved in, allowing space for the operator’s feet during driving and normal DR imaging.

The conveniently located “All Free” lock control buttons provide easy positioning and alignment of the X-ray tube during procedures. The tube rotation, support arm film-focus distance and collapsible column can be easily adjusted.

The additional “All Free" lock control buttons integrated into the lower portion of the tube control handles make tube positioning easy for any operator.

The MobileDaRt Evolution can be moved forward and backwards using the bedside control buttons on the front of the collimator. This allows for easy and accurate position in any situation, including small rooms.

A wide range of movement of the ultra-long arm together with the “All Free” buttons make even the most difficult imaging situations accessible.

Accurate and smooth positioning is provided by the fully counterbalanced system.

In order to provide the best possible workflow, especially in confined spaces, the collimator has built in controls on both the front and back panels.

A special tray is provided for paediatric filters and the inclusion of the optional DAP meter ionization chamber.

In place of a traditional key, each operator can have their own pin number, which unlocks the system and includes their system preferences, including the level and power of the motor assisted driving.

Each operator can set their preferred forward and reverse drive speed.

The system meets today's needs for radiation management within your department. The calculated Dose Area Product (DAP) is displayed prior to exposure and is stored for post-exposure management and reporting.

A DAP chamber and meter are available as an option.

Patient friendly dose reduction is achieved through the use of high sensitivity Flat Panel Detectors (Flat Panel Detector's), advanced DR imaging system and Gridless image processing.

The system will display the patient dose and the exposure index, which is used to prevent “Dose Creep” and to ensure that the ALARA principles are applied.

The mobile may be driven intuitively, using the height adjustable control handle immediately after turning the power on, without waiting for any system boot up time.

Instead of a traditional hard disk, a high speed vibration resistant solid state drive (SSD) has been adopted, thereby reducing the system startup time, allowing rapid imaging to be performed in an emergency.

The high performance wireless Flat Panel Detector's together with the high performance computer provide an image within 2 seconds of exposure, making this the system of choice for the ER and NICU.

The high-power X-ray generator together with the integrated Examination Protocols provides consistent exposures and minimizes patient movement artefacts.

An illuminated hand switch and display on the collimator provides feedback of the exposure status, allowing precise exposure timing to minimize possible patient movement artefacts in the images.

The mobile is designed with an advanced battery charging and management system, extending battery life and general performance.

The all new LED collimator light indicates the irradiation field more clearly even in a bright room. The long-life LED reduces energy consumption and the frequency of replacement.
  • 40% increase in brightness
  • 80% less electrical power consumption

The compact Flat Panel Detector fits inside the cassette tray of Humidicribs, enabling easy imaging in NICU.

The high sensitivity Flat Panel Detector helps reducing radiation exposure and the ability to capture images quickly provides excellent neonatal and paediatric care.

The high-power X-ray generator ensures the shortest possible exposure times, avoiding the possibility of blurred images and the need to repeat exposures. Gridless image processing provides even further dose saving, removing the need to use a grid while imaging.

For your daily use, extra storage spaces are provided to store wipes, pens, markers, etc.

Grooves are provided for holding the Flat Panel Detector vertically while putting a sterile cover on the plate.

Wireless capability means the system can be used for a variety of applications, from scheduling examinations to physicians interpreting images and diagnosing conditions in routine patient rounds, ICUs, NICUs, emergency rooms, operating rooms, etc.
