Apollo EZ represents the "Easy" approach for the radiographic/fluoroscopic room and it comes from the experience of thousands of remote controlled tables manufactured by Villa Sistemi Medicali and distributed worldwide, to grant a compact and cost-effective solution for all the needs of radio-fluoroscopic imaging.
Apollo EZ features series of peculiarities appositely developed to maximize the efficiency of your radiographic room and comes with a complete range of versions and configurations to satisfy any user's needs. A broad series of radiographic studies are granted by a superior flexibility and a comprehensive choice of fluoroscopic applications are obtainable with effortless procedures.
Even in its entry-level configuration with analogical TV chain, Apollo EZ offers all the key benefits typical of a modern and sophisticated unit. A wide range of tubes and generators allows a complete customization of the unit, while its highly-performing mechanical structure makes possible a comprehensive variety of radiographic studies as well as fluoroscopic procedures. In order to dramatically improve the resolution of fluoroscopic dynamic studies, high resolution 1kx1k TV chains are also available in our catalogue.
Apollo EZ was developed as a system as much as possible small and compact, to possibly overcome any restrictions and installation limits even in the narrowest spaces. For this reason, Apollo EZ is available with either 2-way tabletop movement, for the maximum compactness, and with 4 way tabletop movement, in order to maximize patient coverage area, combining tabletop and tube/spot film assembly longitudinal movement.
Rapid and concurrent movements reduce dramatically the patient preparation time and increase workflow. On the film-based versions, the powerful spot film device, available with either line or cross divisions, can fit virtually any application need, while the one-hand cassette loading and unloading mechanism grants a maximized speed for this frequent operation. Thanks to the retractable grid, the operator is never required to manually remove the grid even in all the examinations where it is not required. Finally, on the Apollo EZ the extended focus distance can arrive up to 180cm/71" allowing to obtain chest images comparable to those done on a chest stand, making the remote controlled room suitable also for routine exams.
Apollo EZ has been engineered using the most advanced and sophisticated technologies. The new console, based on wide 12" touch screen display, improves dramatically the system's usability: its immediately accessible commands offer the maximum efficiency and assure an optimal workflow. In addition to the commands available on the Touch Screen console, all table movements can also be activated via the tableside keypad to improve efficiency during the patient preparation phase.
Apollo EZ is entirely engineered and manufactured at our headquarters in Italy, leveraging on our recognized skills in the manufacture of remote-controlled tables and employing European-Standard production processes, guaranteeing an excellent price/performance ratio. The performance of Apollo EZ is therefore assured for a long time, even when the machine is used in the most stressing environments as well as for operations with bariatric patients, thanks to its weight capacity up to 200kg (440 lb.) without movement limitations.
Special attention is always by us given to patient's dose reduction, by employing a number of provisions, such as reduced skin-to-film-distance, automatic collimation, fully automatic parameter settings in both fluoro and exposure. Additionally, in order to grant the highest level of safety, a dedicated anti-collision device on the vertical tilting movement stops the motion in case of contact with foreign objects.
Should you want to combine the performance of the Apollo EZ with the advantages deriving from digital imaging, a possible solution is represented by our acquisition systems based on Image Intensifier: Diva-D and Diva-HDE, featuring a 1K x 1K, 12 bit camera and up to 25 frames per second acquisition speed in fluoroscopy. Full Dicom connectivity is assured for seamless integration into your PACS network, as Diva-D and Diva-HDE support the most common Dicom 3 operation classes (Print, Store, Worklist). Finally, an optional CD/DVD writer can be supplied with Diva systems for immediate images backup directly at the system console.
