Turner Imaging Systems was granted approval under the CE Mark for the Smart-C ® Mini C-Arm portable fluoroscopy x-ray imaging device. Launch into European markets will occur throughout the year.
In the U.S., Smart-C is being deployed in hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers and orthopedic clinics, as well as professional and collegiate sporting events and other places. The battery-powered, 16 lb. Smart-C offers point-of-care imaging, allowing it to be taken to the bedside of a patient with ease. The design also provides surgeons greater flexibility and superior imaging in a cord-free package.
“Securing the CE Mark is a critical regulatory milestone and major step forward in the commercialization and delivery of our innovative Smart-C Mini-C arm fluoroscopic x-ray system into Europe and the Global marketplace,” said Rick White, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “The Smart-C will bring real-time diagnostic point of care imaging to many different health care markets including hospitals, surgery centers, orthopedic clinics, sports teams and the military throughout Europe.”
