Technological innovations in digital radiography are increasingly surprising. Such an example is the uDR 596i imaging system, which in its minimalist design combines a high level of technology, aesthetics and is patient and user friendly. I can vouch for such an introduction, as I have been a user of such a system since 28 October 2019.
Configuration of radiographic digital imaging system
Extremely stable and ergonomic design of the device
All components of the imaging system have been refined so that the user can count on comfort, safety and ease of use. All handles, buttons, centering and synchronization indicators are available from all sides. The stand can be moved manually or using a motor — it is possible to automatically centre and synchronize the X-ray tube assembly with the stand. The mechanical part has been so robustly constructed that we can be sure of eliminating the motion blur caused by vibration of the system components. A stand for combining images is included with the apparatus. The base of the stand is designed for a load of 204 kg. A fixed radiographic table with an active foot withstands a load of 250 kg.
Large-area wireless panel detector
The uDR 596i system offers a panel detector with an imaging area of 427 x 427 mm, a resolution of 3072 x 3072 with a maximum spatial resolution of 3.6 Lp/mm. The material it uses for imaging is a photodiode made of amorphous silicon, and the scintillating material is cesium iodide. The panel has a built-in charger capacitor and provides uninterrupted testing with more energy reserve. Easy access to the charging function ensures consistent detector performance.
Image acquisition system — the brain and heart of the system
The image acquisition system has been divided into four modules:
The system allows for the management of examination protocols, and it is possible to program individual protocols in accordance with working procedures.
Remote support is provided via LAN, allowing for immediate response via the system and user control over connections and queries sent to the service.
Acceptance, specialist and operational tests
The diagnostic quality of the X-ray image and the radiation exposure of the patient and staff depend directly on the technical condition of the radiation source itself and the auxiliary apparatus. An analysis of the consistency of the measurement results carried out over the year from the installation of the apparatus by the same accredited laboratory, showed high compliance with the reference values.

Let the radiograms defend themselves
Summing up the one-year experience with uDR 596i system, I can conclude that radiograms and their descriptions are more detailed (one of the radiologists, when reviewing the study, stated that now they will need to devote more time to the description). And, from the radiographic point of view, I can add that I see more than before — more dynamics, better resolution of details, delicate contrast transitions.
Below is an example of such professional and repeatable radiographic images I am sending for description.
