The enhanced system adds to Hologic’s portfolio of market-leading skeletal imaging solutions. It offers a variety of improved features designed to arm orthopedists, podiatrists and clinicians with diversified imaging options, more flexible storage and transport, and an enhanced interface. The Fluoroscan InSight FD Mini C-arm provides high-resolution and low-dose rate modes, which deliver the largest image size and highest image resolution available on an intuitive 24-inch HD touchscreen. The low-dose rate mode allows physicians to reduce dose rates by up to 50 percent compared to Auto Mode, while continuing to deliver clinically equivalent images. The high-resolution mode enables clinicians to use full detector resolution. The new system also offers MegaView Image in Review Mode, providing clinicians the option to display and view 50 percent larger images.

These enhancements address major pain points and offer solutions that increase workflow and productivity, ultimately leading to a better patient experience

In addition to these imaging upgrades, the system also features hardware updates. These include a streamlined monitor arm with integrated keyboard and reduced top casting that equip clinicians with increased range of motion and positioning options in the operating room. The method for locking the C-arm has also been simplified, reducing the total width of the system in the locked position.

“This new system is a significant advance in our goal to push the industry forward and provide customers with the smartest available engineering that incorporates functionally strong, user-friendly and time-efficient features,” said Pete Valenti, Hologic's Division President, Breast and Skeletal Health Solutions. “Our industry-leading innovation has led to the improved capabilities of the Fluoroscan InSight FD Mini C-Arm Imaging System, from new imaging modes to modernized hardware updates. These enhancements address major pain points and offer solutions that increase workflow and productivity, ultimately leading to a better patient experience.”

Beyond updates to the system’s imaging options and hardware, enhancements also have been made to its interface. These features include a pinch-to-zoom feature, save notifications that allow a way to identify saved images, a save filter to let the clinician filter for saved images, and an auto-save option to save all images acquired during a session.

The Fluoroscan InSight FD Mini C-Arm is now available, and options for new software are available for current Fluoroscan InSight FD Mini C-Arm customers.
