This article was originally published in Clinica
Worldwide launch of Polaroid's (US) new laser imaging and digital film technology, Helios 1417, is set for next month. Selected customers in North America and Europe have already begun to receive the first shipments (see Clinica No 669/70, p 20). Aimed at the high end of the radiology market - it has a price tag of around $100,000 - the system is designed for use with all radiology modalities where large format images are preferred. Polaroid will begin its marketing campaign to establish the system as the "diamond standard" in diagnostic imaging at the annual conference of the Radiological Society of North America next month.
