Adding a new edge to its already advanced spinal treatment mechanisms, Indian Spinal Injuries Centre has incorporated a new radiology device that offers much better and in-depth diagnostic results, helping doctors to get quick excellent clarity digital images with maximum radiation.

India’s leading spine and neurology care hospital, Indian Spinal Injuries Centre (ISIC) is notably the first hospital across Delhi NCR to add Samsung’s new digital XGEO GC80 series radiography machine to its imaging centre.

A spinal injury is one of the most complex injuries to treat and manage. However, often in the absence of mechanisms to detect minute aberrations and damage, such injuries go untreated and worsen over time. Accurate diagnosis is key to assure faster treatment and rehabilitation of a spine injury patient.

“Neurologic consequences are severe and sometimes irreversible. An undiagnosed spine injury can cause devastating neurological damage. For early treatment, timely and accurate diagnosis becomes imperative. Currently, while there is dearth of recorded data to display the prevalence of spinal injuries in the country, there also lack information about techniques and measures used to diagnose patients with SCI. There is a need for active radiographic assessments to deal with the cases of acute trauma. The new radiography system gives us highly improved technological support to have a much detailed and closer assessment of the spine, much better than what current devices offer,” said Dr HSChhabra, Medical Director & Chief of Spine Services, Indian Spinal Injuries Centre.

The newly installed XGEO GC80 series has been approved for delivering high-quality digital radiography performance along with a simplified workflow, to maximise user experience. Offering best diagnostic solution, the installed machine opens new possibilities by increasing throughput and improving workplace.

The system is enabled with next generation S-Vue imaging engine to deliver high-resolution images through advanced processing and adaptive filtering, which enhance image contrast and sharpness. Further, assuring clearer image for accurate diagnosis, the machine provides stitched images rather than separated images. The in-built smart stitching technology captures two or more images consecutively and then stitches the multiple images into one image.

“Ideally, the thickness of bones varies from each other as well as on basis of region. Therefore, the advanced image processing technology effectively of the machine would effectively separate thick and thin parts to display overlapping areas and contours more sharply and clearly. Additionally, the technology would also provide a clear picture in case of an implant by displaying regions-of-interest (ROI) without artifacts. Further, the machine is also enabled to display the details of organs such as lung, spine and inguinal region with different characteristics in detail on a single page,” said Dr Anita Aggarwal, Sr Consultant cum Chief of Radiology Services, Indian Spinal Injuries Centre.

The ergonomic and flexible design receptors of the machine further enables users to take images at any position without a table by enabling tilting angles at -20º ~ +90º, thereby assuring patient comfort along streamlined workflow. While the presence of both useful audio and intuitive user interface, while eases the use with soft handling, the machine also keeps safety and accessibility as its top priority.
