Abstract

The X'sy Pro EFX version general radiography system was developed by adding new functionality to the X'sy Pro, a system developed as a general radiography system for clinics and small hospitals. The X'sy Pro EFX version is an integrated system that combines an X-ray tube holder, a radiography table, and an X-ray high voltage generator into one unit, and that enables various combinations to be selected according to the installation environment and type of treatment. The X'sy Pro EFX version has a one-touch guide function that makes it easy for inexperienced operators to prepare for radiography, a smooth positioning for X-ray tube focus, a dose area product calculation function, a removable grid and a soft mat table top that provides comfortable examinations for patients. This model is a radiography system that takes into consideration ease-of-use for operators and that offers low exposure and comfort for patients.
