The FDR D-EVO III is Fujifilm's third-generation digital X-ray detector and is the first glass-free DR detector, making it lighter weight and more durable.  

November 26, 2019 — Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A. said it will preview its new FDR D-EVO III digital radiography (DR) detector at at the 2019 annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA).

Recently 510(k) cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the FDR D-EVO III is Fujifilm's third-generation digital X-ray detector. It features a sleek, thin design and status as the world's first glass-free DR detector with patented Irradiated Side Sampling (ISS), also making it the world's lightest 14 x 17 inch detector at about 4 pounds. This innovative design removes the traditional glass substrate from the capture layer, eliminating the most fragile layer inside, allowing for a much lighter weight compared to previous models. The FDR D-EVO III will initially be available in the U.S. in 14 x 17 and 17 x 17 inch sizes.

The next generation 14 x 17 inch detector incorporates all of the features of the FDR D-EVO II, including its use of smooth and tapered edges for easier positioning, antibacterial nano-coating to help fight against hospital acquired infections (HAIs) and a long-lasting battery life.

In addition, Fujifilm will display its full range of DR detectors including the Calneo Dual The 17 x 17 inch standard cassette sized detector features two sensitivity capture layers coupled with Fujifilm intelligent energy subtraction processing. A single exposure produces three images; traditional, soft tissue-only, and bone only views. These distinctly different images are expected to be used for visualizing or tracking of lung cancer nodules. The innovative dual capture layer design yields higher definition general X-ray images, enhancing separation accuracy of bone detail and soft tissue.

Fujifilm will also preview the FDR SE Lite retrofit DR detector at the annual meeting. The detector is geared towards bringing DR technology to specialty and small medical practices. Offered as an economical DR solution, the FDR SE Lite DR detector and its companion workstation offer just the right amount of features such as instant image transfer, simplified workflow, and shortened exam times (compared to computed radiography), to meet the unique needs of small practices. Users will have the option of upgrading to include Dynamic Visualization II processing which adapts image contrast and density, based on image, thickness and structural recognition.

Carestream’s X-ray digital tomosynthesis functionality creates three-dimensional datasets from digital radiography (DR) that can be scrolled through similar to computed tomography (CT) imaging. It received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in January 2020. Digital tomosynthesis uses a single sweep of X-ray exposures and streamlines operator workflow by separating the process of DT exposure acquisition from image volume formation.
