Tru-Image Positioning System
Tru-Image™ Positioning System reduces patient radiation exposure by 60-70% and improves image quality.
A round X-ray cone acts like a flashlight where radiation exits the cone in a spreading pattern with only 10 percent actually hitting the receptor. Excess photons are scattered into the patient's tissues or reflected back onto the receptor as noise, diminishing diagnostic quality.
Unlike outdated round cones, Tru-Image incorporates rectangular collimation to control the size of the X-ray photon beam to match the receptor. This results in:
- A reduction in scatter radiation exposure to patients by 60-70 percent.
- Significant improvement in the diagnostic quality of X-ray images.
- Fewer retakes due to cone cuts and angulation errors.
Tru-Image retrofits to any round cone with a diameter of 2.25" to 3". Simply slide on and tighten. Green LED lights signal when the ring is exactly aligned with the X-ray beam, resulting in a perfect image every time!
Each system includes one Tru-Image cone with long-life CR2450 lithium battery, Tru-Image alignment ring, and an adapter ring based on your X-ray unit model. For sale in USA only.
