What healthcare professionals say about Fluoroscan InSight Systems

John Norwig, M.Ed., ATC | National Football League (NFL)

There’s no question that a mini C-arm gives you immediate feedback. The Hologic unit that we have is simple to use, so you have an answer in a matter of seconds. You have more information to help guide you in providing appropriate care for the athlete and I think it helps our athletes to be seen immediately in our facility rather than having to wait to get an x-ray

Edward Diao, MD | University of California, San Francisco

Since 1989, I have always had a Fluoroscan system in my office. Having lost my powers of x-ray vision somewhere along the way, Fluoroscan makes me a better doctor, and helps me provide better care for my patients. It is also a great way to communicate when there is a bone or joint problem, when we are decision-making for fractures or arthritis

Troy Watkins, MD | St. Luke’s Boise Medical Center

Since I only do hand surgery from the elbow distally, Fluoroscan has changed my practice style and is one of the most critical parts of my day. It is located in my main exam room so the patient does not have to go somewhere else to obtain x-rays which significantly streamlines the flow of patients. Its use has created substantial savings: I no longer have an x-ray technician nor do I utilize x-ray folders. In summary, I cannot imagine practicing without a Fluoroscan

Robert Slater, MD | Mercy Hospital Folsom

We use a Fluoroscan system in our operating room and it is an indispensable tool. The image quality is unsurpassed among machines currently available and it is much easier to manipulate and operate than standard large C-arm units

Gregory Buncke, MD | The Buncke Clinic

We have purchased four Fluoroscans over the last 16 years and have been extraordinarily happy with these fantastic systems. It saves time with patients. Prior to Fluoroscan we would have to send the patient to the radiology dept for an x-ray and they would eventually come back with films, which were often not the exact position we would need for small chip fractures around joints

Dr. Alexander Y. Shin, MD | Mayo Clinic

The image quality is excellent and the system provides effective noise suppression, especially if there’s movement while imaging. In my opinion, the Hologic system has the largest primary image and highest resolution in a mini C-arm. Additionally, it uses less radiation compared to its competitors, allowing for a lower dose to the patient and less scatter radiation to OR staff

Dr. Chaitanya Mudgal, MD, MS, M.Ch | Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School

The current generation of the Hologic system offers multiple axes of motion while the platform on which you lay the limb can give you either a vertical or horizontal image. If you don’t have enough magnification, you can use the touchscreen to magnify further, as well as rotate the image by simply touching the screen. All of those things really make a difference when you’re in the operating room

Noah D. Weiss, MD Sutter Surgery Center Novato

I could not imagine my orthopedic practice without my Fluoroscan. It is used a dozen times or more every day and not only speeds up my clinic by avoiding the wait for x-ray, but I also get the exact image I need, quickly and efficiently, allowing us to do a better job.

Kyle D. Bickel, MD, FACS | The Hand Center of San Francisco

As soon as I started using the Fluoroscan my schedule became substantially more manageable. I was able to see patients within predictable appointment slots and give them better care. My patients continue to marvel at the convenience and the technological aspects of the Fluoroscan. From a technical standpoint, the Fluoroscan allows me to obtain the images I need every time. Special views no longer require lengthy descriptions to technologists to obtain, and I can alter the direction, magnification, and intensity of the image at will. It allows me to make more accurate diagnoses than with plain radiographs. The same is true for use in the operating room. I can’t imagine practicing hand surgery without one

Andrew E. Price, MD | Pediatric Orthopedic Services

I love the Fluoroscan InSight for its ease of use, user friendly touch screen features. It is relatively compact and fits nicely in my cast room. It only uses 10% of the radiation of a regular x-ray, which is important to my pediatric patients and their families. It is real time, and I get the views that I want without sending them out of the office. It saves me a great deal of time in the office
