Comprehensive Dose Reduction and Management

SONIALVISION G4 LX achieves comprehensive dose reduction as a total system, equipped with various functions to reduce radiation exposure levels effectively ; such as removable grid, ideal Grid-Controlled pulsed fluoroscopy, new collimator with Multi Beam Hardening (MBH) filters, Virtual Collimation and above-mentioned high quality imaging ability itself. Those functionalities will also contribute to even further dose reduction possibility while keeping good output image quality.

SONIALVISION G4 LX will be the most advanced universal system solution for your future. This will increase your productivity and the conventional RF rooms safety. Also, the new-coming application features born from creative thinking will provide even greater clinical advantages for you.

Tomosynthesis is a state-of-the-art imaging technology to provide high quality multi-slice images to visualize the part which was invisible by the conventional plain radiography, in a simple and quick workflow, and at low exposure dose. Therefore, Tomosynthesis is now spotlighted more and more in the world.

Slot Radiography is an ideal technology to obtain long-view images for full spine / full legs with great accuracy and efficiency. It acquires and automatically integrates a series of accurate images of a few centimeters width central slit straight to the x-ray detector, as the imaging chain successively moves along the patient on SONIALVISION G4.

  • Consistent high image quality
  • Versatile design for various examinations
  • Designed for safety and reliability
  • Comprehensive dose reduction and management
  • Productive and comfortable Work­ow


Shimadzu provides a broad range of diagnostic imaging equipment.

Shimadzu has developed the direct conversion flat panel detector (FPD) that provides high-quality images. They are also the first in the world to create the Remote controlled R/F system on which this state of the art detector is mounted. Additionally, they have developed a variety of other diagnostic systems that utilize this same FPD. Shimadzu is now a leading pioneer of these new types of diagnostic imaging.

Furthermore, recent IT technology developments are introducing efficient diagnostic systems to a variety of medical treatment areas. Shimadzu is supporting the renovation of IT systems in hospitals and medical centers by providing digital processing systems that incorporate the newest IT technology wherever possible and can process many kinds of medical information, including examination images.
