Fluoroscan ® InSight ™ FD Mini C-Arm Be smart with dose. Know the facts. Limiting the amount of radiation exposure to patients and healthcare professionals is a key topic in healthcare today. When using fluoroscopy, it's important to be aware of the different methods used to reduce dose and how different manufacturers chose to use them. The Hologic Fluoroscan InSight FD mini C-arm is designed to use dose efficiently, applying the ALARA – "as low as reasonably achievable" – radiation safety principle, to reduce unnecessary radiation exposure to both you and your patients. The low dose mode enables the user to reduce dose by up to 50% compared to combo mode. 4 ADS-02513 Rev 001 (1/19) © 2019 Hologic. All rights reserved.
