Upgrade your expectations of mini C-arm performance

For those who desire more, TAU 1515 delivers the innovative features you expect from an Orthoscan mini C-arm.

A larger detector and live image give you the freedom to view anatomy as it needs to be seen. Pulsed fluoroscopy and other dose-saving features reduce your dose without sacrificing image quality. Pediatric indication – an industry first – broadens your patient base.

Bring new opportunities to your facility and patients with Orthoscan TAU 1515.

Anatomy revealed
  • See more on-screen content with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 in bright detail on a hi-bright 24″ monitor for an immersive work experience.

    Powered by Orthotouch 2.0 — the advanced touchscreen interface — with color interface, touch support, anatomical selections, and pediatric software.

    Expect exceptional diagnostic imagery with a 12″ x 12″ live image to see fine details of anatomy with vivid clarity

    LIVE IMAGE

Imaging evolved

With a 15cm x 15cm detector, TAU 1515 provides 25-33% larger surface area compared to conventional mini C-arms*.

Keep your focus on the patient and not the equipment by achieving preferred views with fewer shots, improving your workflow and reducing exposure to you and your patients.

A mini C-arm that
works for you

  • 1. LED lights | Insufficient lighting during a case can make it challenging to see anatomy clearly. Unique to the Orthoscan TAU family, surgical LED lights provide additional illumination on the anatomy. Eliminate shadows cast from the C-arm and the OR so you can work with certainty.
  • 2. Bilateral controls | New backlit controls are easier to see with additional buttons for upgraded functionality.
  • 3. C-arm design | Focus on your case with an increased orbital rotation of 160°, larger arc depth of 20”, and improved umbilical cable. Effortlessly maneuver the C-arm to attain preferred views without stressing your patient’s anatomy.
Intelligent Dose Reduction
At Orthoscan, we understand your concerns about radiation exposure and the demand for high-quality images. That’s why the TAU family includes cutting-edge Intelligent Dose Reduction that provides the best in diagnostic image quality while reducing exposure to you and your patients.

CUMULATIVE DOSE REDUCTION*

  • PULSED FLUOROSCOPY
  • OPTIMIZED DOSE FILTER
  • NEXT GENERATION CMOS
  • REDUCE YOUR DOSE, NOT YOUR IMAGE QUALITY

    Orthoscan TAU 1515 features pulsed fluoroscopy technology, previously available only on full size C-arms.

    By imaging at 30 pulses per second, significantly reduce your dose rate compared to conventional continuous fluoroscopy — all without loss of image quality or detail.

    Further reduce dose with selectable pulses per second of 15 and 7.5 pps, depending upon your imaging needs.

* Using Intelligent Dose Reduction (with Cu filter) when compared to Orthoscan 1000-0004-FD. In clinical practice, the use of IDR may reduce patient dose depending on the clinical task, patient size, anatomical location, and clinical practice. A consultation with a radiologist and a physicist should be made to determine the appropriate dose to obtain diagnostic image quality for the particular clinical task.

What’s in a name?

TAU is the name of a mathematical ratio commonly found in nature. It’s often referred to as the Golden ratio.

This ratio can be used to create aesthetically pleasing, natural-looking compositions in designs.

The TAU family was designed using this principle.
