CLA for C-arms used in X-ray medical imaging
Adimec’s next generation of camera lens assemblies for C-arms in X-ray medical imaging

Adimec’s OEM Camera Lens Assembly (CLA) portfolio for medical X-ray imaging consists of the PEARL and RUBY series. Both provide 1k2 30 frames per second (fps) real-time digital imaging in Image Intensifier based equipment. They deliver quality images while reducing cost, strengthening reliability, simplifying installation, and service. Our CLAs cover dose ranges from fluoroscopy through high dose exposures.

X-ray CLA portfolio

  • PEARL offers quality 1k2 CCD imaging with diversity in interfacing, embedded clinical processing and flexibility to fit dose ranges.
  • RUBY targets 1k2 imaging with break-through cost-effectiveness for fluoroscopy mobile C-arms. RUBY is Adimec’s new innovative CLA with CMOS sensor technology and patented “digital iris” concept.
