Eleva User interface for X-ray 

Customize and automate the imaging process

Designed for creating, processing, and transferring digital X-ray exposures, Eleva is an exam and patient-related automatic parameter setting control for our radiography and fluoroscopy systems.

Eleva Tube Head for faster workflow

 

Our DigitalDiagnost C90 is the first Philips system to come with the innovative, award-winning Eleva Tube Head, with easy to- learn touchscreen interface, for a fast workflow. Check or change the most vital exam parameters directly at the tube head. Select the next view of the examination in the examination room and see the preview image directly at the tube head.

Faster workflow and easier collimation

Faster workflow and easier collimation

The Eleva Tube Head offers an integrated  touchscreen and a live camera for extended Eleva control, right in the exam room. The live camera helps with patient positioning by providing a clear view of the collimation area which can help alleviate imprecise collimation such as with obese patients. Better positioning can also help eliminate time consuming retakes that add unnecessary X-ray dose.

 

Utilizing the Eleva Tube Head can speed up the workflow by 28 seconds per examination.*

Live Camera Package

Live Camera Package

Since 67,5 %** of retakes in radiography result from wrong patient positioning, this problem is addressed by the Eleva Tube Head Live Camera.

 

The Live Camera allows the user to check on correct positioning prior to image acquisition also at the working console by means of live camera images.

94 % of the users think that the live camera images at the work station helps to avoid retakes.*

Faster setup time

Faster setup time

  • Live images of the collimated anatomy assist staff in initial patient positioning
  • Detect patient movement and incorrect collimation early with a view of the collimated area at the Eleva Tube Head and Eleva workspot.
  • Double check all relevant system parameters, images, and order of views at the tube head as well as at the Eleva workspot.

75 % of the users consider the Eleva Tube Head as helpful spending more time with the patient.*

Benefits of Eleva user interface

 

The Eleva user interface is adaptable to the way you work and helps provide convenient and efficient patient care. By customizing and automating the imaging process, you can optimize exams for virtually every type of patient, from newborn babies up to obese adults. Enhance your departmental throughput with a fully automated workflow.

Simplifies exposure control
All generator functionality is fully integrated into the Eleva workspot, saving you space and time. You can easily adapt exposure parameters by choosing from our pre-programed settings and applying them right from the Eleva workspot to enhance workflow efficiency.
One concept - multiple modalities
The Eleva interface is common across our radiography portfolio. You decide when, where and how to work, be it on a CR, DR, or RF system. Enjoy the advantages of flexible clustering of different X-ray modalities. You can even start several examinations from different modalities at the same time.
Easy, intuitive to operate

Using the Eleva workspot touchscreen it takes just three easy steps to get an image after exposure.

Step 1: Select patient
Step 2: Perform exam
Step 3: Complete exam

All images and information are integrated into your hospital networks such as RIS/PACS and archiving systems through DICOM. Intuitive use interface shortens training times.

Integrates with the latest technologies
With each Eleva release we provide integration with our latest technologies such as, SkyFlow Plus (contrast enhancement for gridless chest exams), SkyPlate wireless portable detectors, ceiling suspended geometry (optional fully motorized), Windows 10 OS, and DICOM-DVD storage. Each update expands your capabilities.
Work quickly and intuitively

The Eleva user interface provides all the tools and controls necessary for seamless procedures. This one common platform is easy to learn and use, and is highly suitable for streamlining your radiography department. It is the same harmonized user interface found across our radiography portfolio.

Target and deviation index

With the resultant IEC standard 62494-1 “exposure index of digital X-ray imaging systems,” which provides a unified method to generate an exposure index value, requires users to input a target exposure index (EI_T). This offers the possibility to specify the noise level that is diagnostically appropriate for an examination and indicates a deviation index (DI) value that gives feedback to the user regarding technique and image quality based on signal-to-noise ratio. These are important values in providing feedback in regard to achieving optimal images at a low dose, the EI and DI don’t directly indicate patient dose.

“May depend on the type of detector, the type of examination, on the diagnostic question…“*

Philips Bone Suppression

Philips Bone Suppression** software helps remove bone structures from chest images for an unobstructed view of soft tissue. This clear view can facilitate an accurate image interpretation. As part of Philips’ Eleva platform, Bone Suppression is integrated into the regular system workflow.
