The Longtail is perfectly suited for orthopedics, trauma, and radiology applications. Given the full spine image acquisition in a single shot, the Longtail is the best detector for the most sensitive population: children - specifically pediatric orthopedics. Further, the highly portable Longtail is an easy solution for mobile and on-site units – either trauma response units or mobile x-ray operations. The Longtail is an easy and practical addition to any radiology department or practice as it can be used for both localized and long-bone studies.
Acquiring baseline full spine studies has never been easier with the Longtail. The quick acquisition and highest geometric accuracy of the Longtail makes it easy to acquire the full-spine studies that chiropractors need. Additionally, the ability to also take localized studies, it’s easy portability, and cost-conscious price point makes the Longtail the perfect detector for any practice looking to upgrade to DR or install their own imaging suite.
When it comes to the imaging of large animals, there is no other more practical solution than the Longtail. The 42-inch active imaging area allows for the rapid acquisition of images of large abdomens of small animals and thoracic regions of large ones with one exposure. This is particularly critical when animals are unanesthetized and human restraint is necessary. Large animal images can be acquired in a single exposure, not only reducing animal discomfort and human exposure in certain cases, but also improving workflow and efficiencies for all other operations. The Longtail is a wireless, lightweight, portable solution that quickly produces excellent quality digital images with any properly functioning x-ray generator.
The Longtail is perfectly designed for a variety of industrial applications, such as non-destructive testing for pipes and manufacturing, pearling, and security. It’s lightweight portable profile, wireless capability, and superior quality DR imaging make it a versatile and reliable solution for even the most harsh environments to quickly detect flaws and damage before serious issues develop, preventing and/or reducing potential costs. The Longtail coupled with an amorphous silicon detector can accommodate a large range of wall thicknesses, reducing the need for retakes to capture appropriate images, also reducing radiation dosage and saving time. The latest DR technology processes images quickly, without the need for development, allows them to be remotely analyzed, stored and shared with ease. The Longtail panel can be used repeatedly, significantly reducing operational costs over time.
