Fujifilm Introduces First U.S. 24-cm by 30-cm Wireless Detector At AHRA

Latest FDR D-EVO panel provides exceptional image quality in variety of exams, including neonatal and orthopedic imaging

August 17, 2012 — Fujifilm Medical Systems USA Inc. announced at the 2012 Association for Medical Imaging Management (AHRA) annual meeting the commercial availability of the FDR D-EVO 24-cm by 30-cm cesium iodide flat panel detector, the latest addition to Fujifilm’s family of digital radiography (DR) products. The first 24-cm by 30-cm cesium wireless flat panel detector in the United States will provide ease of use, image quality and dose efficiency in a lightweight, compact design to accommodate neonatal, pediatric and orthopedic imaging.

The 24-cm by 30-cm wireless FDR D-EVO flat panel detector combines the dose efficiency benefits of Fujifilm's patented Irradiation Side Sampling (ISS) technology with the image performance of cesium iodide. The ISS technology is designed to improve detective quantum efficiency (DQE) by reducing the distance for light signals to reach the sensing electronics. By reducing scatter and blur, it produces ultra-sharp detail even at very low X-ray exposure. As a result, the FDR D-EVO cesium detector achieves as much as 20 percent higher DQE performance compared to conventional detectors, enabling potential for lower patient dose and enhancing diagnostic confidence for the radiologist.

In addition to diagnostic benefits, the new detector provides the same ease-of-use as the entire FDR D-EVO lineup, providing extended versatility and renewed ease of positioning for common exams. "The size of the new 24-cm by 30-cm FDR D-EVO detector offers the versatility and maneuverability that every technologist has been hoping for. It's the perfect addition for busy imaging departments where exams requiring a small field of view, like neonatal incubator trays, extremity and skull exams, take place daily," said Rob Fabrizio, senior marketing and product development manager, DR systems, Fujifilm.
