SONIALVISION G4

SONIALVISION G4

R/F system with Flat Panel Detector

An all in one Fluoroscopy system providing advanced imaging technology including Tomosynthesis, Slot and RSM-DSA.

With the Sonialvision G4, Shimadzu offers a total system – one that is useful in a variety of examinations and examination environments, providing high image quality, reduced exposure levels and easy operation.

The Sonialvision G4 is built on Shimadzu’s extensive experience in X-ray imaging and as such offers excellent flexibility and some unique features including:

  •   Large Field of View (43x43cm)
  •   Patient weight up to 318kg
  •   Isocentric tilting
  •   Automatic Positioning
  •   Urology collimation
  •   Offset collimation
  •   Virtual collimation
  •   Dose reduction technology
  •   Image processing engine
  •   Fluoroscopy
  •   DR radiography
  •   Slot radiography
  •   Tomosynthesis
  •   DSA & RSM DSA
  •   DICOM – Worklist, Print, Store, Archive, MPPS

Dose Reduction
These features make this system ideal for a wide verity of examinations ranging from paediatric to bariatric, DR and series imaging all on one flexible platform.
The large field of view and high image quality is perfect for everything from routine checkups to specialized examinations and observations including gastrointestinal series and video fluoroscopic examinations for swallowing (VF). 

Usability

Patient Access and Usability
The area around the table is uncluttered and the monitors and local consoles can be freely configured.

A wide flat table top with high weight capacity ensures patient safety and easy cleaning while full patient coverage is achievable without moving the patient.

With the lowest minimum table height in its class, even frail patients can get on and off easily.

Simply pressing one button will position the system for optimal patient transfer, lowering the table and moving the X-ray tube unit out of the way for patient safety.

The comprehensive tableside controls allow the operator to focus on patient care throughout procedures.

High Image Quality
These features make this system ideal for a wide verity of examinations ranging from pediatric to bariatric, DR and series imaging all on one flexible platform.
The large field of view and high image quality is perfect for everything from routine checkups to specialized examinations and observations including gastrointestinal series and video fluoroscopic examinations for swallowing (VF).

Equipped with various functions to effectively reduce exposure levels, the system provides peace of mind for both patients and attending personnel during examinations. This is of particular importance in paediatric and gynecological examinations.

  •   • Pulsed fluoroscopy
  •   • Fluoro loop store
  •   • Grid controlled fluoroscopy
  •   • Beam hardening filters
  •   • Asymmetric collimation
  •   • Virtual collimation
  •   • Removable grid
  •   • DAP meter integration
  •   • High performance FPD
  •   • Advanced digital imaging
Bariatric imagingBariatric Imaging
The wide, clean, seamless tabletop offers the highest weight capacity in its class, sufficient for even very heavy patients.

In addition, with the high power X-ray generator, tube and advanced digital image processing bariatric procedures are routinely supported.

The flexibility of the Sonialvision G4 is further evident in the wide range of acquisition modes available:

Acquisiton Modes

  •  Pulsed Fluoroscopy
  •  DR Radiography
  •  Series Acquisition
  •  DSA & RSM DSA
  •  Video Swallow

Advanced Imaging
Additional advanced technologies ensure that current and future imaging needs are realized:

  •   Slot Radiography
  •   Tomosynthesis
  •   DSA & RSM DSA

DSA (RSM-DSA)
The large field of view means that DSA can be used for examinations of the hepatic artery to the entire lower extremities.

The RSM-DSA filter provides continuous automatic masking resulting in a DSA-like image even when the patient or the table is moved. It produces excellent results where patient movement is inevitable, such as bolus chasing and abdominal examinations, especially when the patient finds it difficult to hold their breath.

Tomorsynthesis and T-Smart
Tomosynthesis
is an automated acquisition process that acquires several images while the tube is moving in an arc across the region of interest, similar to the more conventional topographic movement.

The series of images are then processed in a "Cone Beam" or CT-type back projector resulting in a volume of data. The volume of data is then available for investigation by scrolling through the volume in a series of slices.

Slice thickness can be post processed in a similar manor to that used in CT imaging. Slices of interest can be extracted as required for further investigation, printing and DICOM storage.

Tomosynthesis provides numerous key advantages including:

  •   Low dose
  •   Weight bearing
  •   Low metal artifacts
  •   High spatial resolution
  •   High quality imaging in plaster fixation
  •   Easy positioning
  •   Fast acquisition
  •   Large FOV

T-Smart

Shimadzu has developed an updated processing workstation for use with Tomosynthesis, called T-Smart. The new workstation now applied iterative processing techniques to the image data. This results in improved image quality and even further reduction in metal artifacts. Alternatively, T-Smart can be used to further reduce the X-ray dose to the patient while retaining excellent image quality.


Lateral Shoot Through
An optional overhead X-ray tube and a wireless FPD can be used in conjunction to provide lateral shoot through and for other out of buck procedures.

In addition, a bucky wall stand with a fixed or wireless FPD can be included to further improve your workflow.

DICOM
Full DICOM 3 network compatibility ensures patient information can be registered, printed and sent smoothly to your servers.
This provides for an optimised workflow:

  •   Register the patient using "Worklist"
  •   Select the desired examination (APR)
  •   Perform the examination using the pre-programmed examination sets
  •   Print DICOM images if desired
  •   Send DICOM images to PACS
  •   Procedure complete
  •   MPPS support throughout the procedure
