The "Easy" Approach
Apollo EZ represents the “Easy" approach for a radiographic/fluoroscopic room. This approach stems from the work of thousands of remote-controlled tables manufactured and distributed worldwide by Villa Sistemi Medicali, which grant a compact and cost-effective solution in the needs of radio-fluoroscopic imaging.
Apollo EZ features a series of peculiarities developed to maximize the efficiency of your radiographic room. The Apollo EZ comes with a complete range of versions which are configured to satisfy the needs of any user. A broad series of radiographic studies are granted with superior flexibility, and a comprehensive choice of fluoroscopic applications are obtainable with effortless procedures.
Even in its entry-level configuration with analogical TV chain, Apollo EZ offers all the key benefits typical of a modern and sophisticated unit. A wide range of tubes and generators allows complete customization of the unit, while its high performing mechanical structure makes possible a comprehensive variety of radiographic studies as well as fluoroscopic procedures. If looking to dramatically improve the resolution of fluoroscopic dynamic studies, high resolution 1k x 1k TV chains are also available.
Apollo EZ was developed as a system aiming to be small and compact with the ability to overcome any restrictions and installation limits put in place by narrow work environments. For this reason, Apollo EZ is available with either 2-way tabletop movement for the maximum compactness, or with 4-way tabletop movement, in order to maximize patient coverage area, combining tabletop and tube/spot film assembly longitudinal movement.
Rapid and concurrent movements reduce the patient preparation time and increase workflow dramatically. On the film-based versions, the powerful spot film device, available with either line or cross divisions, can fit virtually any application need, while the one-hand cassette loading and unloading mechanism grants a maximized speed for this frequent operation. Thanks to the retractable grid, the operator is never required to manually remove the grid even in examinations where it is not required. Finally, on the Apollo EZ the extended focus distance can arrive up to 71" (180 cm) allowing to obtain chest images comparable to those done on a chest stand. This makes the remote-controlled room suitable for routine exams.
Apollo EZ has been engineered using the most advanced and sophisticated technologies. The new console, based on wide 12" touch screen display, improves dramatically the system's usability. Its immediately accessible commands offer the maximum efficiency and assure an optimal workflow. In addition to the commands available on the Touch Screen console, all table movements can also be activated via the tableside keypad to improve efficiency during the patient preparation phase.
Reliable and Safe
Apollo EZ is entirely engineered and manufactured at Villa headquarters in Italy, leveraging on our recognized skills in the manufacture of remote-controlled tables and employing European-Standard production processes, guaranteeing an excellent price/performance ratio. Even when used in the most stressing environments, including bariatric patients, the Apollo EZ is assured to work efficiently thanks to its 440 lb. (200 kg) weight capacity and no movement limitations.
By employing a number of provisions such as reduced skin-to-film-distance, automatic collimation, and a fully automatic parameter setting in both fluoro and exposure, a patient is always given special attention by us in an effort to reduce dosage. Additionally, in order to grant the highest level of safety, a dedicated anti-collision device on the vertical tilting movement stops the motion in case of contact with foreign objects
