Years ago/maybe more than 25 we used a faxitron xray machine to measure bone
calcification on research samples and samples being decaled, it was the best
thing since sliced bread, had to go to the radiology dept to use it and was
told they were dying off the market, loved it, so easy to use and so useful.

We have used the Faxitron instrument for the past 3 years at multiple sites.
Faxitron creates a digital image of a specimen quickly and safely and a t
multiple magnifications. The instrument is placed in either Surgery or
Surgical Pathology (SP) and we use it primarily on breast cases to assist in
orientation and gross dissection, identifying radioactive seeds or locating
micro calcification. The instrument is easy to use, safe and you can connect
to multiple LIS systems and a Hospital PACS. There is no code to charge for
use when used in SP, only when used by Radiology or Surgery.
There is only one company that manufactures and sells the instrument:
Faxitron Bioptics, LLC
Tucson, AZ
The are willing to bring a unit to your site for demonstration and you may
be able to talk them into leaving for a evaluation.

> Hello to all in histoland.  Our chief pathologist is interested in getting
a faxitron xray digital imaging machine.  Is anyone out there using this
technology and can you suggest a company in which to order one from.  Any
help in this will be greatly appreciated.
