The IMS2760 is a digital image processing system designed to extend the advantages of Digital Image Technology to C-Arm
Fluoroscopy. IMS2760 has image enhancement processing capabilities that answer specific needs for a variety of clinical C -
Arm applications performed during fluoroscopy.

The IMS2760 Image System is an integral part of the C-Arm system, designed to work hand-in-hand with the C-Arm
control.The Image Processor is activated by the C-Arm footswitch or handswitch and controlled by the C-Arm control panel
and the monitor cart control keyboard. The IMS2760 acquires video from the video camera of the C-Arm.

The unique software of the IMS2760 improves the image by reducing noise, acquiring images at a true 10 bit gray scale,
1365H x 525V line time digital acquisition, real-time edge enhancement and displaying high line 1287H x 1049V processed
video images on two high resolution black anti-glare monitors. The user can manipulate the image, i.e., freeze, store or make
a hardcopy printout of the image displayed on the monitor. The user may retrieve any stored image from a digital disk,
manipulate the image, i.e., zoom, minify, edge-enhance, electronic shuttering (Image Crop) etc. on the retrieved image .
With version >01
TMS2760 software the system will do D S A / M S A / R S A and 4F/Sec cine runs to include re-masking, variable mask
landmarking, and with direct store of images to the dynamic disk drive. Start date of delivery 04/01/96

With revision of software > 04IMS2760 image system provides 30f/sec operation and includes the addition of multi
subtracted masking, subtracted image window and level, start of delivery 11/1996

The IMS2760 includes I M A G E P A G E D I S P L A Y function. The 16 images are displayed on the right or " B " monitor for
image reference during fluoroscopy work and transfer images during minification, hard copy selection and other image
post processing features.

Live images are displayed during 2 - 30 Frame cine loop acquisition on the right monitor and the acquired images at 2¬
30 F/Sec are displayed on the left monitor .

The IMS2760 C-Arm Image Processing System was developed with a modular design and simple
C-Arm interface allowing for quick and efficient repairs. High-reliability parts were used in its design and affords a long
service life with upgrade-ability in system design.

Block diagrams that illustrate the main components and interconnection of the IMS2760 Image Processing System and
C-Arm 7000 refer to Figure 3.0-1 rev 4-2 of this section.

With revision of software > 06 IMS2760 image system provides with optional Real-time Edge Enhancement or Vascular
Image Module the following:
-Digital Document Rotation -Image Mirror (Image Reversal) with Fluoroscopy off.
-Circular Image Masking -Auto Magnification Mode
-Single Image Delete -Image Store Alert
-Cine Auto Store -Subtracted Image Mask in D S A , R S A , M S A Re-registration
-Pulse Fluoro Auto Store -Patient View Markers for RIGHT & L E F T
-Cine Default Frame Rate -Add Cine Run Indication In Patient View Mode
-Patient ID allows input of 13 characters -LIH off function default setting
-Edge Enhancement Default setting -DSA Default Noise Reduction Setting
-DICOM 3 Interface. -Extended Image Storage
NOTE: Only those system with the required hardware and software can provide the operation listed above.
