Apollo is the next generation remote controlled RF system designed for maximum patient throughput and application flexibility. In the demanding environment of your imaging department, Apollo is one step ahead in the direction of efficiency. A perfect mix of flexibility, ease of use, image quality and connectivity allow you to get the best out your RF room.
Special attention is given to patient's dose reduction, by employing a number of provisions, such as low-absorption tabletop materials (plastic or carbon fiber), reduced skin-to-film-distance, automatic collimation, fully automatic parameter settings in both fluoro and exposure (zero point technique). Four sides open access and one of the industry's lowest tabletop height will ease patient loading operations, as well as procedures requiring support personnel to operate in the table area. The new Touch Screen interface, with its hi-tech look and feel in line with Apollo's performance, allows to further improve the system's usability.
The wide scanning range provides complete patient coverage without the need for longitudinal tabletop movement, resulting in faster positioning and better patient comfort. The powerful spot film device with line and cross divisions will fit every application need. A unique cassette loading and unloading mechanism speeds up even this frequent operation. All table movements can also be activated via the tableside keypad to improve efficiency during the patient preparation phase.
Reduced skin to receptor distance, fully automatic zero point technique, state of the art CCD cameras with advanced noise reduction algorithms, are the key to consistent image quality in every application. Should your intention be to go digital, we can provide you with our solutions based on Image Intensifier technology: Diva-D and Diva-HDE, featuring 1K x 1K, 12 bit camera and up to 25 frames per second acquisition speed in fluoroscopy. The optional image intensifier lift device is also available to further improve the digital image quality.
Apollo maximizes the flexibility of the remote controlled RF approach. Skeletal, gastro-intestinal, tomography, vascular, ERCP are performed easily and quickly. Chest exams are also possible thanks to the continuously adjustable Source to Image Distance, which can arrive of up to 180 cm, depending on the specific Apollo version. Extremities can easily be executed with the patient standing only a few centimetres above the floor. Fully electronic bi-directional tomography without connection bar, can be performed on film or in digital mode and in any position of the table.
The Open configuration of Apollo allows a total access to the patient from any side of the tabletop in a fast, comfortable and safe way. This complete accessibility allows also to perform any interventional procedure that might become necessary, without any limitation; the operator has therefore the possibility to act rapidly and effectively.
The carbon fiber tabletop allows on the Apollo Open a maximum patient load of 230 kg (507 lbs.) without limitations in movement, allowing the access also to bariatric patients.
Should you want to add to Apollo the power of digital imaging to further enhance the workflow of your room, a possible solution to digitalize it is our acquisition solutions 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.
