About Lithoscope

Fluoroscopy is a technique that employs x-rays to generate real-time still images or video of a patient’s body. It is a commonly used medical technique that helps physicians with a wide variety of diagnostic and interventional procedures.

Fluoroscopy is used in many types of examinations and procedures;

  • Orthopedic procedures, such as manipulation of broken bones in fracture reduction or insertion of implants and checking appropriate positioning or alignment
  • Gastrointestinal investigations using contrast agents, such as barium in the intestine to study its outline and movement
  • Cardiovascular and interventional radiology procedures, such as catheter insertion and monitoring of its progress (eg, to undo a blockage or insert a stent)
  • Urological procedures, such as extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy, percutaneous nephrolithotripsy (eg, to see the stones’ localization through the kidney calics)

Lithoscope, is a U-arm mobile fluoroscopic unit with the x-ray source which is commonly used together with extracorporeal shock wave lithotripters to visualize urinary system stones.

Lithoscope can be used effectively in other urological and endoscopic operations such as cystoscopy, ureteroscopy, catheterisation and percuteneous nefrolithotomy under fluoroscopy.

The movements of the U-arm which allows the operator to localize the stones in three axis, is controlled by powerfull electric motors.

During the motion from vertical position to oblique position the image intensifier and X-ray source neither leaves from the focal point nor make oscillation.

Since the unit has automatic brightness control, there is no need to change the voltage and the current in automatic mode. The scopy voltage and the current are automatically changed with respect to the brightness of the image.
