Health technology giant Royal Philips announced it has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market its DigitalDiagnost C90 radiography system. The ceiling-mounted radiography system features a live camera image directly displayed at the tube head, designed to increase patient throughput and decrease the time to diagnosis, Philips said. The DigitalDiagnost C90 offers multiple detector options and features, such as SkyPlate detector sharing, with the ability to use a single detector across multiple compatible Philips DR rooms. The company’s Unique 2 image processing software improves image quality like more homogeneous black backgrounds, reduced noise, and automatic enhancement of small details.
