Versatile and Intuitive
Versatile and intuitive, the OTC18S system delivers automated stitching, from a wall stand or table, enabled by sophisticated motorization and software, at an economical price point. Workflow is also optimized for all exams thanks to vertical and horizontal tracking functionality. Precisely designed to withstand high-volume throughput in hospital radiology departments, medical imaging centers, and large orthopedic facilities with the need to perform a broad range of radiographic studies.
Our overhead tube crane (OTC) features a large LCD touchscreen interface enabling the technologist to view, adjust and control most system settings without leaving the patient’s side. In addition, the OTC touchscreen interface guides the technologist through the intuitive automated stitching exam setup procedure. By integrating with a DELWORKS DR System and compatible generator, technologists are given the ability to set up long-length examinations and adjust generator technique factors without leaving the patient’s side. Its overhead horizontal and transverse ceiling-mounted rails provide technologists with limitless imaging procedure capability, including cross-table laterals and other challenging views.
The system embraces operational efficiency via ergonomically-designed user controls with automated tracking to selected image receptors, and an industry-leading table with a patient weight capacity of 800 lbs (363 kg). Built in the USA, it will deliver many years of continuous use and exceptional user satisfaction.
Long-length exams are automated. With the patient in position, either at the wall stand or on the table, the technologist utilizes the tube head controls to mark the top and bottom of the anatomy to be imaged. The system then calculates the number of exposures needed, and correct image overlaps. With the patient remaining in place, the technologist holds the exposure switch, and the system makes the first exposure, repositions the tube angle and detector, exposes, and continues until the full anatomy is imaged. The system then automatically stitches the images to present an integrated long-length image.
The OTC18S ceiling-mounted tube crane highlights an advanced, technologist-friendly touchscreen interface providing seamless operation of your radiographic system by displaying tube angulation, SID values, and customizable generator controls. Color-coded movement identification buttons provide optimal precision when setting up views. Effortless movements enable fast and secure adjustments of the tube head while electromagnetic braking provides quiet and secure locking. Its five-tier telescoping column delivers exceptional vertical movement of 71 in (180 cm), capable of performing complete head-to-toe radiographic procedures including upright weight-bearing and recumbent tabletop exams.
