The FCR Go portable digital X-ray system integrates a customized version of Fujifilm’s FCR Carbon XL CR reader and a notebook version of the Flash IIP console with the Hitachi portable. The system makes images available in as little as 23 seconds and aims to provide remote users with the same functionality and sophisticated image processing features available at the fixed technologist workstation in the imaging department.
All of the image optimization and advanced image processing features of Fujifilm’s Flash IIP are available at the portable console so that comprehensive image adjustment can be done remotely and images can be sent directly to PACS without additional intervention at another workstation.
Because the system will accommodate wireless communication or hardwire connection to a facility’s network, the patient worklist is always available from the RIS/HIS and images can be transmitted to PACS immediately following study completion for quicker interpretation. The system also offers Fujifilm’s SpeedLink X-ray Control Software for a fully integrated interface between the portable X-ray generator and the FCR reader; this allows techniques to be set automatically according to the exam type.
