SkyFlow Plus: scatter correction for non-grid X-ray exams

Faster X-ray workflow with SkyFlow Plus scatter correction algorithm

SkyFlow Plus provides computationally efficient X-ray scatter correction tailored to your individual patient, based on a collection of Monte Carlo simulation results (scatter kernels). Monte Carlo simulation is a technique which is commonly used in machine learning, a core part of AI, to estimate the probability of outcomes given various inputs, uncertainties and system dynamics. SkyFlow Plus reduces the effect of scattered radiation for non-grid exams, allowing you to obtain DR (Digital Radiography) images with grid-like contrast while avoiding the time and effort of attaching and detaching a grid.

Smooth gridless workflow

While you must always decide whether to use a grid, now you can combine the ease of a gridless acquisition workflow with the contrast of a grid image. SkyFlow Plus digital scatter correction technology produces grid-like images without a grid by reducing the effect of scatter radiation. SkyFlow Plus is suitable for all examinations in free exposure.

Substantially faster workflow

In a summative usability study with samples of radiologists working with and without a grid, it was found that there was an average time saving of up to 34 seconds [1] per exam without a grid.

Exceptional patient experience

SkyFlow Plus features fully automatic operation for all anatomies, so you can devote more attention to your patient. Since you may not need to prepare the detector with a grid, you can focus on your patient’s comfort and help shorten the exam time.

High quality imaging

Depending on the patient type, SkyFlow Plus automatically identifies the amount of scattered radiation in an image. It improves the image contrast by subtracting scattered radiation from the image.
