With the introduction of flat detector technology to mini-C-arms, the OrthoScan FD-OR is the ideal solution for dedicated hand and extremity intraoperative image guidance. The system reduces the distortion inherent with image intensifier technology, improving diagnostic accuracy. Fine details of relevant anatomy are visible due to the increased gray scale and contrast capability of flat detector technology.


At 2.5 inches, OrthoScan FD-OR features the thinnest flat detector on the market. This flat detector design, ultra-compact form factor and ability to over rotate the C-arm assembly allows convenient and accurate positioning in the surgical environment. Furthermore, the wider C-Arm arc depth provides the surgeon with extra space to work more comfortably.


Added thoughtful features include integrated LED field lights built into the underside of the x-ray source, which help reduce shadows cast from the tube head. Moreover, ergonomically placed one-touch sterile field controls and a wireless foot switch allow the surgeon to maintain control and work quickly and efficiency.

Flat Detector Technology

Flat detectors provide increased image quality, improved reliability, and more efficient imaging. Compared to image intensifiers, the flat detector’s more direct signal conversion path, with essentially no optics, results in uniform image brightness and less geometric distortion. The solid state detector(CMOS) provides more reliability and no image degradation due to vacuum leaks. Lastly, flat detectors read more of the individual x-rays, translating into better image quality for a given dose.  



The FD-OR provides immediate viewing with connectivity to PACS systems using DICOM. The images (live and static) can also be viewed via “live” video feed to your on-site or off-site medical support. In addition, OrthoScan is the only mini c‑arm capable of automatically transferring images to your EMR system. 


Image Storage

Stores 12,000 images on the unit and is USB capable


Optimal Positioning : 150° over-rotational range enables surgeons to easily achieve positions normally out of reach of a mini C-arm without having to re-position the patient or stressing anatomy.

In addition, the FD-OR utilizes the thinnest flat detector housing on the market (2.5”), allowing the surgeon to place the detector directly on the operating surface.

Exceptional Image Quality-  Flat detector technology provides increased image quality with improved dose efficiency

Compact, light weight - Approximately 50% smaller and 25% lighter than conventional units, allows maximum maneuverability

Workflow optimised touchscreen user-interface: The 24” High-Resolution Monitor allows for a 20% larger viewing area and the 1920 x 1200 resolution provides exceptional image quality showing fine details of relevant anatomy. In addition, the touch screen interface facilities easy input functions.

Robust- Solid state detector more reliable than glass tube ll; Fewer components – less chance of part failure

Easy and intuitive single-handed control: Conveniently located on each side of the tube head assembly, bilateral controls provide easy access to imaging and documentation in the sterile field.

About the Manufacturer

Based in Scottsdale, Arizona, OrthoScan is a privately held medical device company which was founded in 2002 with the intent to bring to market a state of the art mini c‑arm and to provide innovative product solutions in orthopedic imaging. Our first entry in the imaging market is the mini c‑arm, which is used for fluoroscopic imaging of the extremities in orthopedic surgery and for digital diagnostic imaging in the office. We have built on the original concept of the mini c‑arm and have expanded our focus to provide our customers with other innovative technologies in orthopedic imaging.

Our executive team in sales and product development has over 20 years of experience in orthopedic imaging. During that time, our team gained an understanding of the imaging needs of the orthopedic surgeon. We have incorporated this surgeon feedback into the development of our new mini c‑arms which will provide surgeons with a next generation imaging solution. The company’s smaller and lighter weight mini c‑arms provide superior adjustment-free imaging to healthcare professionals. We currently offer a full family of mini c‑arms for extremity imaging to our customers. Each of our products meets key clinical needs for the surgeon and the radiology department.

Our distribution strategy is focused on the extremity imaging needs of the orthopedic surgeon and the radiology department. We believe that using a combination of imaging and orthopedic-based sales distribution offers us a unique access to a broader base of customer relationships and technical expertise creating a network unique in orthopedic imaging. We are committed to providing customers with state of the art products for orthopedic imaging. As such, we are developing products that will expand the base of procedures in which our products can be used.
