FOBOS XR is a stationary diagnostic digital radiology forensic system. The system is designed to acquire whole-body digital X-Ray images of bone structures and soft tissues. The system allows to capture of both AP and lateral scans. FOBOS is a task-oriented system designed to be used in morgues and forensic centers.
