Advances in healthcare are made from a willingness to face changes & challenges with innovative solutions that will shape the future of medicine as we know it. This willingness entails taking responsibility & recognizing opportunities in the marketplace by identifying the specific needs of those most in need. PortaVision Medical, has tackled a mobile fluoroscopy healthcare problem with an innovative and ground-breaking solution — rather than bringing patients to a fluoroscopic system the fluoroscopic system is brought to the patients. Simple idea but extremely difficult to execute. Now, because of developments with static/dynamic flat panel detectors and lots of work by PortaVision to satisfy regulatory mobile fluoroscopic requirements Virtual C takes fluoroscopy where it has never been before.

Initially the project was to bring mobile fluoroscopic imaging to pre-term babies (neonates) while the baby remains in the protected environment of the incubator. During our research and development, the possibilities that this technology breakthrough would not be limited to neonates but to substantial larger market opportunities. Virtual C technology can easily be adapted to address unmet needs by simply integrate the technology to existing commercially available x-ray sources and specific designed or existing commercially available mobile carts to address each new application.

There are numerous medical applications or scenarios for dynamic imaging where the use of a traditional mobile C-Arm is impractical:

  • Performing complex line procedures, such as placing peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs), which can be especially difficult in neonates

  • Umbilical vein catheters (UVC) or completing needle aspirations

  • Neonatal intensive care units (NICU), as general solutions are not sized for premature infants

  • Modified barium swallow studies in hospitals, nursing homes, and home healthcare settings
