January 4, 2017 — Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A. Inc. unveiled the FDR AQRO, a complete digital radiography (DR) system that combines advanced dose-saving features in detector engineering with an ultra-lightweight point-of-care mini mobile cart, at the 2016 annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA). The company also showcased its latest FDR Go mobile, which includes several new enhancements.

FDR AQRO is a complete digital mobile X-ray system that combines all the elements necessary to maximize maneuverability, generate high-resolution images and deliver low patient dose in a variety of point-of-care settings. The system offers the low-dose acquisition capabilities of Fujifilm’s FDR D-EVO II, ISS and noise reduction circuitry, combined with Virtual Grid image processing software which allows acquisition of images without a physical grid — reducing dose techniques by as much as 50 percent. FDR AQRO is equipped with an exclusive Fujifilm-engineered mini-generator, a compact tube head incorporated onto an ultra-lightweight, durable mini mobile cart. Additional features include an integrated touchscreen and X-ray control panel that articulates and swivels for easy viewing from any angle and can run up to 12 hours on its lithium batteries or plugged into wall power. FDR AQRO also has Fujifilm’s Hydro AG antibacterial silver ion coating on its primary surfaces for enhanced protection against germs.

Fujifilm also exhibited its latest FDR Go with updates for 2017. The FDR Go is a full-featured system in a compact design, featuring smooth and speedy travel with the technologist throughout the hospital and on a quiet, agile mobile X-ray platform. FDR Go integrates with both FDR D-EVO II and FDR D-EVO digital detectors and the full-featured FDX Console easy-to-use workstation designed to simplify exams. The latest FDR Go includes new workstation software with automated keypad display, quick start, enhanced Virtual Grid (option) and Dynamic Visualization II image processing (option). Other new features include a larger 17-inch display, built-in storage for wipes, detector bagging holder slot, a smart wake from standby and smart charging enhancements.

FDR AQRO and Dynamic Visualization II will be made commercially available in the United States upon clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Sections through the three-dimensional reconstruction volume (upper left, grey) around a pulmonary alveolus with hyaline membrane (lower left, yellow). On the right, the images are superimposed. In the centre is the air bubble (alveolus). The electron density is represented by different shades of grey. On the inside of the air bubble is a layer of proteins and dead cell residues, the "hyaline membrane". This deposit, which can be represented in its three-dimensional structure for the first time by the new method, reduces the gas exchange and leads to respiratory distress.
