MG_3987-300x200This new piece of forensic equipment provides fast, high penetration digital forensic screening at a fraction of the cost of comparable CT scanning equivalents.

The X-Ray unit itself is completely sealed within the machine for added safety and to allow extended usage.

FLATSCAN provides fast and accurate screening meaning that autopsies can be carried out very quickly. Detailed imagery is produced from the crisp and clear scans leading to more accurate autopsy outcomes. The images are captured through the acquisition of Digital Flat Panel High resolution technology.

Easy specialized forensic analysis

The FLATSCAN enables forensic screener operators to focus on an affected or infected organ for extremely detailed analysis at the touch of a button.

Injuries such as bullet wounds can be localized by zooming in on the specific area and mapping machine-cropped-300x170 the path of the object. Hidden injuries which otherwise could not be viewed without lengthy invasive investigation can be viewed and easily discovered in a non invasive manner with minimum disruption to the body.This all-digital technology includes full dose control of a high performance x-ray generator, and allows the optimization of the exposure levels necessary for the separate inspection of each body part.

Maximising specialist time

The FLATSCAN is veryeasy to use, a technician can capture whole body images for initial analysis. slider2-jpeg-cropped-300x112Allowing the forensic pathologist to focus in on specific body areas or organs and fast track to a diagnosis.

This equipment also has the ability to run non-stop including a user-friendly operator interface allowing a very efficient and seamless inspection process.

Additionally the FLATSCAN reduces the requirement for invasive surgical autopsy.

Completely safe X-Ray

The X-Ray itself is sealed and so the machine does not need to be housed in a separate room. This means operators are not restricted by a set time of working as the machine can be operated continuously.

Gathering evidence
