Fujifilm Introduces 17x17 Inch FDR D-EVO Wireless Model

October 19, 2011 — Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A. Inc. announced the commercial availability of the FDR D-EVO Wireless 17 x 17 inch flat panel detector (FPD).

This latest addition to the FDR D-EVO line improves technologist workflow by reducing the time needed for the technologist to reposition and rotate the detector during chest or abdominal imaging. The 17x17 inch size is particularly useful in portable examinations where additional field of view can be beneficial during difficult positioning.

The company’s newest image processing software, "Dynamic Visualization," is featured in the system's FDX Console workstation. The software offers enhanced image quality throughout the entire exposed area, allowing physicians to visualize detail more efficiently. The FDX Console also employs new features such as auto-trimming; this allows for off-center images of smaller anatomy to be sent to picture archiving and communications systems (PACS) at full size for optimal viewing.

Like the smaller, 14 x 17 inch FDR D-EVO Wireless, the new 17 x 17 inch flat panel detector offers dose efficiency improvements using Fujifilm’s patented Irradiation Side Sampling (ISS). ISS helps improve detective quantum efficiency (DQE) and enables technologists to take high quality images at lower doses. This design reduces scatter and blur of X-rays captured, resulting in sharper images with greater detail to enhance diagnostic confidence for the radiologist.

Additionally, the new FPD also offers a lasting power supply that will reduce downtime and increase throughput. The system offers a lightweight removable lithium ion battery that provides up to three hours or 200 exposures of use per charge. A multi-charger system offers fast charge times and two spare batteries are also included with the detector so there's always a charged battery waiting and ready.

An optional detachable cord can be used to provide for continuous charging and the ability to leave the detector in the bucky for uninterrupted extended use.
