Global spotlight on South African manufacturer’s digital X-ray innovation
September 20, 2013 Editor 0
Recently featured on season nine of the popular US medical drama series Grey’s Anatomy, where it was described as “the most cutting-edge tool in diagnostic technology”, the proudly South African Lodox full-body digital X-ray scanner has registered significant uptake in market acceptance since its South African television debut in June, launching Sandton-based manufacturer Lodox Systems onto the world stage of health-related technological innovation. As the only X-ray imaging system in the world that can take a full-body X-ray image, the Lodox scanner takes only 13 seconds to produce an accurate full-body overview of injuries and foreign bodies in a patient – and 16 seconds to produce a lateral scan ¬– as opposed to a conventional X-ray machine, which requires up to 30 minutes and various individual X-rays to compile a full body image.
