This processor is available with a single or an optional dual last image hold. There is an interface for use in pulse fluoro applications. When using a continuous x-ray generator the SS750 image processor may be configured to save the next to last image in memory, to allow for minimal x-ray dose to the patient and operator. The Image Processor serves as a power supply for the camera, and also performs the scan conversion process from progressive to interlaced (standard 525 line RS-170 video outputs). All FLUORECORD® Image Processor systems have a very low latency scan conversion process. There is no full frame delay as with other scan converter designs. The Fluorecord® scan conversion process ensures minimal time between image acquisition and display. This is obviously of benefit, as it aids eye to hand coordination. We offer interfaces for standard continuous fluoro systems, as well as pulse fluoro systems. There are additionally external control inputs which provide video inverse, and horizontal and vertical sweep reversals.
This Image Processing System is an image acquisition and processing system. The image processor provides the real time functions of noise reduction and edge enhancement, post processing functions of window, level, and subtraction, as well as power and control for the Fluorotron® High Performance Progressive Scan TV Camera. A remote control console and wireless remote permit operation of these functions from locations convenient to the operator.
From the compact remote control unit included with many of these processors, the standard features of noise reduction, edge enhancement, window, level, sweep reversals, and subtraction are controlled during the procedure. Images may be stored or retrieved as well from this control. An optional infrared wireless remote control is available.
The optional Disk Recorder stores up to 450 full frame images (no data compression) at up to 2 frames per second. There is automatic time and date stamping, as well as six areas where patient / procedural information may be annotated onto the images. The Disk Recorder is controlled from the Remote Control Console and / or the IR Remote and a text keyboard is added to allow input of patient information.
This processor is designed for exceptional fluoroscopic quality with the edge enhancement and noise reduction as a standard. All of the other features are the same as the 760 processor.
The Disk Recorder stores up to 450 full frame images (no data compression) at up to 2 frames per second. There is automatic time and date stamping, as well as six areas where patient / procedural information may be annotated onto the images. The Disk Recorder is controlled from the Remote Control Console and / or the IR Remote. The High Line Rate Converter presents the video information as 1049 line interlaced RS-343 output. These outputs are in addition to the RS-170 outputs provided as standard equipment, which allows viewing of procedures on high line rate monitors, while simultaneously outputing 525 line video, (for example: to a VCR or video disk recorder for archival purposes). The RS-170 outputs are optionally convertible to 4:3 aspect ratio outputs for this purpose. The Image Processor system with options is available as either a floor standing package, or as a swing-out rack mount chassis.
The SS762/1000 Image Processor for Digital Spot Film
This system incorporates all of the features of the 763 with the addition of the radiographic technique. An ND filter mechanism is provided to attenuate the increased light level of a radiographic exposure.
The text keyboard allows patient annotation for stored images. The image disk holds up to 900 images. All digital spot images are stored on the disk. Either a positive or negative polarity may be selected for digital spot images.
Serial exposures may be taken at up to a rate of 8 per second.
Through the Digital Laser Port the user may print either individual images or an entire case with a single keystroke, in the background, and immediately continue reviewing cases.
The easy to use remote console is located in the procedure room at the monitor cart or at the R/F table.
