IMIX Americas Inc launched its IMIX Insight line of full-featured,
affordable digital radiography (DR) products in Europe at the European

Based on the company’s proven detector technology, the new
high-quality IMIX insight line addresses general radiography and
orthopaedic imaging applications.
The IMIX insight PanoRAD is a universal, full-function DR system
featuring a small footprint and innovative stand design that allow for
maximum flexibility. It is aimed at imaging centres with ceiling height
restrictions (down to 8-foot ceilings compared to 9-feet for other
systems). The full-room PanoRAD includes a generator, detector head, and
table, along with a fully motorised stand with remote control.
The product line also includes the IMIX insight NovoRAD, which offers
the flexibility of a dual-detector room with just one detector. The
NovoRAD includes a unique ceiling-mounted tube support, fixed four-way
floating tabletop, and upright stand.
The affordable IMIX insight OrthoRAD features a straight-arm stand
specifically designed for the orthopedic market. The fully functional
solution features tools designed to address orthopaedic imaging needs,

According to Smitt-Jeppesen, president and CEO of IMIX Americas, the
IMIX insight systems provide exceptional value, especially for mid- to
low-volume users who might not be able to support traditional expensive
DR solutions, but need more functionality and better workflow than
offered by analog or CR systems.
IMIX Americas is a unit of IMIX ADR, a worldwide medical technology
company. IMIX’s primary manufacturing facility is in Finland, and the
company has offices in the United States, China, Hong Kong, and Finland.
