FDA Approves Aspenstate’s AiRTouch, a lightweight portable X-ray system that could be particularly useful for quickly obtaining chest X-rays of COVID-19 patients.

The handheld device weighs in at 5.5 pounds (2.5 Kg) and resembles a large digital camera with a touchscreen. AiRTouch acquires images with the push of a button and can wirelessly transmit them to PACS (clinical image storage system), without the need for a computer. Its battery charges within two hours and can capture up to 300 exposures per charge. Its portability has already made it useful in drive-through screening centers in South Korea, according to the company.

Besides using AiRTouch for chest X-rays for COVID-19, the company believes that it has a role in urgent care, ambulances, sports medicine, extremities, dental, and veterinary settings.
