Faxitron - Pathology


The compact size and relatively minimal cost of specimen radiography systems allow pathologists to place units in their labs. The advantage is immediate and routine access to high-resolution imaging resulting in fewer re-cuts and ultimately faster final report generation.  The application is not limited to breast specimens. From intact bones to bone decalcification and from intact fetuses to fetal remains, a broad range of specimens can be examined directly in lab. The Faxitron PathVision offers a large Field of View which permits high-resolution images of a fetal demise and a fetal autopsy.
