Philips SkyFlow reduces the effect of scattered radiation for non-grid bedside chest exams, allowing you to obtain DR images with grid-like contrast while avoiding the time and effort of attaching and detaching a grid.
While you must always decide whether or not to use a grid, now you can combine the ease of a gridless acquisition workflow with the contrast of a grid image, for portable chest exams. SkyFlow, our intelligent X-ray image processing software, produces images with grid-like contrast without a grid by reducing the effect of scattered radiation during non-grid bedside chest exams.
