_MG_3987The FLATSCAN forensic screener provides fast, high penetration digital forensic screening at a fraction of the cost of comparable CT scanning equivalents.

It is a completely sealed X-ray unit for added safety and to allow extended usage.

The speed and accuracy provided by the FLATSCAN means that extremely accurate autopsies can be carried out very quickly. Detailed and precise imagery is produced from the very clear scans leading to more accurate autopsy outcomes. The images are captured through the acquisition of Digital Flat Panel High resolution technology.

Easy Specialized Forensic Analysis

Using the FLATSCAN forensic screener operators can focus on an affected or infected organ for very detailed analysis at the touch of a button.

Specific injuries such as bullet wounds can be localized by zooming in on a specific area and mappingmachine cropped the path of the foreign object. Hidden injuries which otherwise could not be viewed without lengthy invasive investigation can be viewed and easily discovered in a non invasive manner with minimum disruption to the body. This all-digital technology with full dose control of a high performance X-ray generator, allows the optimization of the exposure levels necessary for the separate inspection of each body part.

Maximising Forensic Pathologists Time

The FLATSCAN is so easy to use, a technician can capture whole body images for initial analysis. PrintThis allows the forensic pathologist to then focus in on specific body areas or organs and focus on diagnosis.

This equipment has also the ability to run non-stop with a friendly operator interface allowing a very efficient and seamless inspection process.

Additionally the FLATSCAN reduces the requirement for invasive surgical autopsy.

No Separate Room Required

Because the X-ray itself is sealed it does not need to be housed in a separate room and operators are not restricted by a set time of working as the machine can be operated continuously.

Gathering Forensic Evidence

A catalogue of forensic images is automatically saved by the FLATSCAN and can be printed or moved to other devices. Each image comes complete with essential details including date and time, image captures, subjects names and operators name.

The captured images are processed via a high-performance workstation, providing detailed results that greatly assist in the process of reports generation.
