The lightweight flat panel DR cassette provides portability to address lateral or other cassette-based exams as needed, even in existing DR rooms. There is a a detachable power supply which eliminates the potential hazards of a tethered cord or concerns about battery life.

Featuring secure network connectivity, D-EVO transmits images to the technologist workstation in only 5 seconds and features 9 second cycle times. FDR D-EVO uses Fujifilm's patented ISS (Irradiation Side Sampling) to improve DQE (detective quantum efficiency) for image quality.

The result is FDR images with consistent high quality images and increased diagnostic confidence.

The product is anticipated to be available in the second quarter 2010. FDR D-EVO requires FDA clearance and is not yet available for sale in the U.S.
