Philips BV Pulsera Features

The Philips BV Pulsera C-Arm is a multi-application mobile X-ray imaging system for the most challenging interventional procedures in Pain Management, General, Orthopedic, Vascular, Neurovascular, and Cardiac surgeries. The BV Pulsera is a C-arm with a powerful fluoroscopy system and high-resolution CCD camera, outstanding image quality with low X-ray dosage, crisp, clear images, and superior penetration power.

Clear Visualization

The Philips Pulsera features a full range of radiation management protocols that allow low X-ray doses even during lengthy procedures, while still providing excellent image quality. The Pulsera comes equipped with unique technology to help maintain clear visualization of dense anatomy and complex vasculature:

  • High Power Pulsed Exposure visualizes fast-moving anatomy with outstanding image quality for a virtually unlimited amount of time.
  • Unique BodySmart software promotes first-time right imaging and dose efficiency. It delivers consistently superb image contrast by adapting the measuring field to the area of interest.
  • Automatic contrast and brightness offer single-touch adjustment of contrast/brightness to the ROI to enhance details in real-time.
  • High-definition fluoroscopy provides full contrast for the steepest projections, like lateral hip exams.
  • Digital Exposure (Sharp Shot) mode allows a single high-quality image to be taken for archiving and printing.
  • Ortho Plus applies extra X-ray power to visualize challenging regions of interest with normal or obese patients.
