Step up to the world of freedom

Description for the Discovery XR656 plus : Discovery* XR656 Plus lets you enjoy productivity and workflow benefits thanks to FlashPad*, a wireless detector that was designed—from the beginning—for advanced digital imaging.

Clinical Cases

  • Had an implanted screw invaded the hip joint space?

    VolumeRAD study ordered. VolumeRAD allowed removal of overlying structures, helping to enable a confident diagnosis.

  • The definitive answer: no.

    A single-slice interval from the VolumeRAD data revealed that the implanted screw had not invaded the joint space. The patient underwent secondary surgery and proper implant placement was confirmed.

  • Is it bone growth or a tissue lesion?

    Dual Energy Extraction applied. Through a Dual Energy Subtraction chest exam, the bony anatomy was removed from the images, increasing the visibility of the tissue-based anatomy.

  • Definitive diagnosis achieved.

    A 12 mm nodule was discovered directly behind the area of concern, ruling out the rib-related bony growth. Digital radiography with Dual Energy Subtraction may have helped lead to a definitive diagnosis.

  • What was causing blood in the urine?

    VolumeRAD study ordered. Staff initially chose a 20 min radiograph, then considered different options.

  • Definitive diagnosis achieved.

    The single 4 mm slice interval image revealed a lobulated mass in the left paramedian aspect of the bladder. The radiologist stated the following: The increased coronal spatial resolution of the digital rad image helped confirm diagnosis; and, the ureter entering the bladder was clearly visible.

  • Was it a mass causing this patient's symptoms?

    Dual Energy Extraction applied. A Dual Energy Subtraction chest exam subtracted calcified structures from the PA image, and a mass was identified in the esophagus.

  • Definitive diagnosis achieved.

    A congenital or acquired out-pouching of the esophageal wall was discovered and diagnosed as an esophageal diverticulum. Later, a CT exam confirmed the diverticulum.

  • How do advanced applications work in unique situations?

    Desired image created. Using Auto Image Paste, multiple low dose images were obtained and pasted into a single image using the recumbent table paste mode.

  • Improved productivity achieved.

    The Auto Image Paste software on the hospital's radiographic system allowed non-upright pasting imaging. Total exam time: under 4 minutes. In this case, the hospital realized a 70 percent reduction in total time as compared to a previous study using a long cassette.

  1. No clinical evidence has been established supporting the following claims in patients with active lung or pleural disease that could obscure pulmonary nodules, including fibrosis, emphysema, compressed lung, scarring, severe lung disease, and in patients with objects in or around the lungs that could obscure pulmonary nodules. The effectiveness of the device may vary depending on nodule prevalence and type.
  2. Defined as a recommendations for further advanced imaging, based upon the Fleischner Society guidelines for pulmonary nodule management. MacMahon, Heber, et al.
