August 7, 2012 — Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A. announced the latest addition to its family of digital radiography (DR) products, the FDR D-EVO Suite II, a cost-effective, flexible, DR-room solution designed to optimize workflow while utilizing any of Fujifilm’s FDR D-EVO portable detectors.
The FDR D-EVO Suite II is designed with busy technologists and their patients in mind, while providing Fujifilm’s high image quality. It comes equipped with new automation and display features on the tube head. The new tube head includes a convenient touch screen for system adjustments traditionally found at the generator console.
“One of the highlights of this new system is having these controls at the tube head,” says Rob Fabrizio, senior marketing and product development manager, digital radiography systems, Fujifilm. “This allows the technologist to stay with the patient at the table while making simple exam adjustments. Then, the tech can simply return to the control area to take the exposure.”
The system’s workflow enhancements also provide benefits in areas where speed during the exam is critical. Fabrizio adds, “The new system is perfect for everyday use to high-volume, high-stress emergency departments. It provides just the right balance of automation and manual movements for day in and day out reliability and time critical grab and go speed.”
Any of Fujifilm’s FDR D-EVO detectors, including the 17x17 model, can be used interchangeably with the FDR D-EVO Suite II to maximize flexibility. By providing access to the 17x17 detector, the new system offers a full field of view that was traditionally only available with high-end, fixed detector systems. The lightweight wireless FDR D-EVO panels can further maximize ROI by allowing clinicians to mix, match and share sizes and capture-types throughout the radiology department, including other rooms and portables.
The release of the FDR D-EVO Suite II comes on the heels of the company’s recent No. 1 ranking as the highest score overall for medical equipment vendor in the “2012 Best in KLAS Awards: Medical Equipment & Infrastructure” report.
