SAMSUNG Announces US Commercial Release of SAMSUNG XGEO GU60A U-Arm-based Digital Radiography System

Ridgefield Park, NJ – November 18, 2013 - Samsung Electronics America Inc. announced today the U.S. commercial release of the Samsung XGEO GU60A, its first U-Arm-based digital radiology (DR) system. Ready for immediate commercial delivery, the Samsung XGEO GU60A broadens Samsung’s DR portfolio with a compact system that provides the convenience, usability and performance to meet the demands of providers delivering high volume, dedicated patient care.

The Samsung XGEO GU60A incorporates the innovative Samsung technologies that have been introduced across its DR portfolio, from the Flat Panel Detector (FPD) design and auto positioning functions to advanced image-processing software. It offers a unique alternative to current utility DR systems by combining core features with best-in-class usability enhancements such as LED indicator lights and individual blade control to minimize patient exposure.

“The Samsung XGEO GU60A offers a perfect balance of performance, flexibility and space-saving,” said Doug Ryan, Group Vice President for Samsung’s Health and Medical Equipment (HME) unit within its Enterprise Business Division. “Samsung is excited to continue to expand its DR portfolio with this compact and versatile system offering fast, easy and accurate diagnosis for use in environments where space is at a premium.”

Utilizing a Samsung TFT-based FPD, the XGEO GU60A incorporates proprietary Adaptive Local Contrast Stretching (ALCOS) software with customizable post-image processing for optimizing contrast and edge sharpness. This enables the system to deliver high image quality, fast results and provide diagnostic confidence across diverse applications.

Award-winning ergonomic design features complement the Samsung XGEO GU60’s advanced image quality. The system’s flexible U-Arm can be rotated from +120 degrees to -30 degrees or raised and lowered to suit the application, while the Auto Positioning Function enables the user to program the most frequently used positions and automatically swivel into place. LED indicator lights highlight each procedural step, helping to simplify and enhance patient/provider interactions.
