Forensic Pathologists at Lodox’s Core

Through our extensive experience and customer focus, we have observed that the art of medico-legal death investigations lies in creative thinking and innovative methods that must be applied in order to seek answers. It was through this common core understanding that Lodox embarked on a collaborative effort that ultimately provided us the opportunity to interpret and exclusively satisfy the needs of forensic pathologists around the world.

A Solution for Forensic Pathologists

A Solution for Forensic Pathologists

The time has come to uncover a solution that incorporates all of the existing Lodox advantages, but is specifically moulded to forensic pathology requirements, and complements and integrates more naturally into a forensic facility and the daily needs of pathology staff. The latin definition of ‘exero’ is to reveal or uncover. The eXero-dr is the product of over 5 years of dedicated forensic partnerships in medico-legal death investigation facilities.

Improved workflow and throughput

Improved workflow and throughput

Throughput in a facility is increased by the full-body image by reducing the time required for full body examination.1,2 Use of the Lodox reduces the total time required for full body coverage by approximately 87% (translating to 7 Lodox full body examinations vs. 1 on conventional radiography).3
