The acquisition system based on 43x43 cm dynamic Flat Panel detector allows to acquire every anatomic district, thanks also to special functions such as Digital Subtraction Angiography DSA and automatic Stitching. The Open design, based on a single-side suspended tabletop, grants a direct and easy access to the patient from all sides of the table. This configuration is particular useful during interventional procedures, because two or more operators can be at direct contact with the patient. The mechanical structure of the tabletop grants a patient weight capacity up to kg without limitations on the table movements. In addition to the low dose required by the high sensitive dynamic digital detector, different solutions can be implemented on the system to further reduce the dose to the patient during the exam. Apollo DRF Open has as standard a carbon fiber tabletop, material with lower X-ray attenuation respect to the common plastic laminate, requiring thus less X-ray dose to obtain a diagnostic image.

Its top performance and operability have always been widely acknowledged, with features such as the wide application flexibility, high productivity and high image quality, still making it one of the most appreciated products by radiology professionals.
This new version of the Apollo DRF remote controlled table has been equipped with a number of innovative features that significantly improve its performance and make its use more straightforward and user-friendly, thus increasing the efficiency of routine daily use.
Implementing new examination procedures in the system also allows additional diagnostic information to be acquired, thus making the diagnosis process more comprehensive. All Apollo DRF movements have been designed to ensure rapid and accurate positioning and allow the widest possible range of radiographic projections. The wide travel of the tube-detector assembly ensures complete patient coverage, thus avoiding the need for its repositioning or to move the table longitudinally.
By means of motorised tilting of the tube support column, combined with rotation of the X-ray source, oblique projections can also be carried out on the table as well as patient exposures on a stretcher. The focus-detector distance, which can be extended up to cm, makes it possible to examine the chest directly on the remote controlled table. Thanks to the seamless integration of the remote controlled table with the digital acquisition system, Apollo DRF simplifies and speeds up the workflow, thus reducing to the minimum the need for manual operations by the operator.
In fact, the system recognises the type of projection to be performed and automatically adjusts all examination parameters according to the pre-set values for each projection. By simply pressing a key, the table automatically reaches the pre-set position, setting all geometric features according to the radiographic projection to be performed, such as focus-detector distance, collimation area, additional filtration and correct anti-scatter grid between the two available in the system.
Should grid use not be required, such as when examining paediatric patients or extremities, the system automatically parks the grid outside of the X-ray field, thus resulting in a reduction in the dose delivered. The large dynamic detector is able to provide high-resolution X-ray images and high-acquisition frequency fluoroscopic sequences, rapidly switching between modes. Its high resolution and sensitivity allow the system to obtain extremely detailed and sharp images at low dose, while the active area of 43x43 cm assures the right coverage of each anatomical area.
The large active area of the detector and high quality of the acquired images are conducive to an extraordinary range of possible applications in radiography and fluoroscopy: from general radiology procedures to dynamic ones focusing on the digestive or peripheral venous system, from pain therapy procedures to micro-invasive procedures, from urography to tomography examinations.
In addition, vascular examinations are also possible via the digital subtraction angiography DSA package. In the configuration with an additional wireless detector, which may be seamlessly integrated with the same digital acquisition system of the remote controlled table, the application abilities of Apollo DRF are further extended, making it possible to perform exposures in direct contact with the detector and on stretcher patients.
This operational flexibility may be further extended by using a second X-ray tube on a suspended ceiling stand that can be controlled by the same remote control system generator which, together with the wireless detector, also makes it possible to perform lateral projections on the table. Apollo DRF features a number of solutions that are thoroughly designed to reduce the dose and to assure the utmost safety for the patient.

Del Medical – Apollo DRF 4.0* by Villa
The innovative Dynamic Flat Panel Detector operates as a full digital modality for both high resolution radiography and high frame rate fluoroscopy. One room, one detector and one imaging platform are all you need to perform an extensive range of applications that typically require multiple devices when based on legacy equipment. According to your workload and patient workflow requirements, you can instantly switch from general radiographic studies, to high volume chest exams, trauma exams, or contrast studies such as GI, urological and vascular investigations. The new dynamic detector delivers up to 30 frames per second for fluoro procedures. For general radiography, the detector delivers the same image quality of the widely used detectors for DR applications. The Flat Panel technology delivers sharp and accurate images to support your diagnosis and is not affected by geometric distortion which is typical of Image Intensifiers. The grid can also be automatically removed for non-grid applications, such as pediatrics or extremities.
