When you need extra power || Quality and power

When you need extra power

Rely on a steady stream of uninterrupted imaging when performing long interventions or open surgery with the BV Pulsera mobile fluoroscopy system. Get an extra boost of power to see through challenging patients and dense anatomy with Ortho Plus and automatic high penetration mode. A 9” or 12” image intensifier is available to handle diverse clinical requirements.
Pulsed exposure mode || Quality and power

Pulsed exposure mode for exceptional contrast

The pulsed exposure mode produces superb image contrast, reduces movement artifacts in cardiovascular examinations and provides you with high-quality images. This gives you the power and image quality your work in the OR demands.
Rear-wheel steering || Efficiency in the OR

Rear-wheel steering for easy positioning

The ultra-compact mobile C-arm stand features rear-wheel steering for easy maneuverability and positioning. Mobile View Station with touchscreen display can be moved around the tight confines of a crowded OR to reach the most desirable viewing position.

See through dense anatomy and steep projections

It can be difficult to locate and orient pelvic fractures in obese patients with conventional mobile fluoroscopy systems. The Ortho Plus feature provides extra X-ray power to enhance visualization of dense anatomies. High Definition Fluoroscopy also provides full contrast for the steepest projections, like lateral hip exams.
Simplify vascular procedures || Count on us as your patients

Simplify vascular procedures

We offer a wide range of vascular options with different fluoroscopy and exposure frame rates and optional acquisition modes, like C0₂, to enhance visualization during demanding vascular procedures. The single user concept allows clinicians to use a footswitch and remote control to control various imaging functions from the table: Subtraction, Trace, Roadmap, or Masking.
Rotating anode technology || Quality and power

Exceptional contrast and clarity for cardiac exams

The pulsed exposure mode produces superb image contrast and reduces movement artifacts to deliver high quality images for cardiac examinations. This supports confident decisions for a range of procedures, such as pacemaker implants, biventricular implants, and bypass checks.
Rotating anode technology || Quality and power

Rotating anode technology for long procedures

Exceptional heat management capabilities allow this system to keep pace with your long cardiovascular and interventional procedures. Rotating anode technology and automatic high penetration mode gives you the power to image virtually any type of patient. See fine details at the steepest projections and observe rapidly moving anatomy.
APF parameters || Efficiency in the OR

APF parameters for high throughput

With the single user concept and Anatomically Programmed Fluoroscopy (APF) parameters, you can easily control every step of your procedures. To get more out of every day.

Save time and X-ray dose with BodySmart software

To help you work quickly yet gently, Philips unique BodySmart software promotes first time right imaging and dose efficiency. It delivers consistently superb image contrast by precisely adapting the measuring field to the area of interest. This has the potential to further manage X-ray dose.
View images ergonomically || Count on us as your patients

View images ergonomically

To provide ergonomic viewing for different medical staff, the Mobile View Station can be placed close to the operating table. The height and angles of the monitors can be adjusted to comfortable viewing positions. The smooth, sealed controls simplify cleaning.
DoseWise to manage dose || Efficiency in the OR

DoseWise to manage dose efficiently

With the BV Pulsera, you benefit from highly evolved X-ray technology with comprehensive dose management features. Philips was the first company to market the mobile C-arm and has over half a century of experience in developing mobile C-arm systems for the surgical environment. That translates into a full range of radiation management features that allow low X-ray dose for lengthy surgical procedures, while providing exceptional quality images.
Enhance viewing for operators || Count on us as your patients

Enhance viewing for operators

The 12" monitor on the stand displays the clinical image to the operator so they can see the C-arm position in relation to the anatomy of interest. It can be tilted and rotated for the operator’s comfort. This ensures that the image is available where it is needed to support fast and easy positioning of the C-arm.
Extensive radiation management || Efficiency in the OR

Radiation management features

Philips unique beam filters with an additional 0.1 millimeter of copper and 1 millimeter of aluminum increase the quality of the X-ray beam and reduce the patient skin dose by 40%.¹Pulsed Fluoroscopy enhances imaging of dense and complex anatomy to support you in further managing dose. Reduced fluoroscopy modes apply ½ and ¼ the dose of continuous fluoroscopy with no noticeable difference in image quality for static images.
