If you use mobile imaging equipment (C-arm, ultrasound, endoscope, arthroscope) that doesn't have native DICOM, getting images from those systems onto your network will require a special solution. That's exactly where the MediCapture recorder comes into play. Of course, there are several varieties of MediCapture, so there's going to be a little leg work required to find out which one best fits your needs.

Fortunately for you, we've done the leg work and compiled it below. Read on for a comparison of the MediCapture series of image transfer systems and their different capabilities.

Orthoscan-MDI-vs-Orthoscan-FD

From an imaging chain standpoint, the Orthoscan MDI and the Orthoscan FD mini C-arms have a lot in common: kV range, mA range, detector resolution, pixel spacing. They also have a fair amount of overlap in terms of applications: podiatry, orthopedics, sports medicine. In spite of all this common ground, however, there are some big differences between these two systems that are worth noting if you're considering an Orthoscan for your next mini C-arm acquisition. Below, we'll compare the Orthoscan MDI and the Orthoscan FD side-by-side to demonstrate their separate strengths.

Below, we'll share with you a few "sweet spot" facilities and/or circumstances that can be well served not only by a mini C-arm, but specifically by the compact and versatile Orthoscan MDI.
