Developing Technology that Advances Medical X-ray Imaging

Advances in healthcare are made from a willingness to face changes with innovative solutions which shape the future of medicine. This means taking responsibility for recognizing opportunities in the marketplace and identifying the needs. PortaVision family of Virtual C Arm mobile fluoroscopic systems are the industry first mobile fluoroscopic systems to address the technological limitation of current mobile C Arm systems. PortaVision brings breakthrough mobile fluoroscopy X-ray imaging into hospital intensive care units, patient bedside, emergency rooms, surgery Centers, imaging centers, nursing homes/home healthcare centers, rural medicine, and global health organizations

PortaVision Medical an innovative medical imaging technology company focused on developing technological advanced, innovative mobile fluoroscopic X-ray systems that target specific clinical needs. We recognize the challenges when performing mobile X-ray procedures and meet those challenges. There are numerous medical applications for dynamic imaging where the use of a traditional mobile C-Arm  are impractical. Examples of such applications include performing complex line procedures, such as placing peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs),  umbilical vein catheters (UVC) or completing needle aspirations, in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU),  and modified barium swallow studies in hospital, nursing home, and home healthcare.  Virtual C Arms are game changing mobile fluoroscopic  systems capable of performing fluoroscopic procedure at any location without the need for  a special bed or other patient support. Virtual C Arms will improve the quality of patient care, add convenience, and provide high quality cost effective technology that result in improving the patient’s outcome.

The competitive advantage of these innovative Virtual C Arm systems stems from patented, game changing technology that eliminate the need for a mechanical C Arm by electronically ensure the x-ray source is aligned to the flat panel detector prior to and during bedside fluoroscopic procedures


    Alignment System

  • Radiographic
  • Multi-Rad
    • Alignment
  • Fluoroscopic
  1. User select Alignment on workstation monitor
  2. Workstation software then display the alignment exposure factor and adjust collimator aperture  to alignment setting
  3. User depress  the exposure switch
  4. The alignment software evaluate the alignment image and display the projected position (small gold square)

 


Modes of operation

  • Radiographic
  • Multi-Rad
    • Alignment
  • Fluoroscopic
  1. The user then align the system by moving the X-ray source until gold square is aligned to center of the yellow square
  2. Once aligned the yellow square changes to green indicating successful alignment condition, the user then press Accept, the accept button will minimize the alignment software and change mode to border detection and send the accept condition to workstation software

 

 


Modes of operation

  • Radiographic
  • Multi-Rad
  • Alignment
    • Fluoroscopy
  1. Remote screen display live image of the patient,  virtual  collimator, live fluoro and the Last Image Hold
  2. Post factors and dose will be an overlay the same as the laptop screen
  3. Display kVp, mA, mAs, Fluoro Time, Dose Rate and Cumulative Dose
