Fujifilm Releases Cesium Detector Panel for FDR D-EVO

Latest addition to D-EVO line offers image quality, dose efficiency without sacrificing ease-of-use

April 12, 2012 — Fujifilm Medical Systems USA announced the commercial availability of the FDR (Fujifilm digital radiography) D-EVO Cesium portable flat panel detector. The newest addition to the FDR D-EVO family of lightweight wireless flat panel detectors combines Fujifilm’s patented irradiation side sampling (ISS) technology with the exceptional dose and image quality performance of cesium iodide.  

Fujifilm’s ISS is an innovative technology designed to improve detective quantum efficiency (DQE) by reducing the distance for light signals to reach the sensor. By reducing scatter and blur, ISS produces sharper images with greater detail. As a result, FDR D-EVO Cesium achieves as much as 20 percent higher DQE compared to conventional flat panel detectors, enhancing diagnostic confidence for the radiologist. 

“FDR D-EVO Cesium features advancements that benefit everyone in the radiology department. Technologists will immediately recognize its lightweight and ease of use, radiologists will notice its exceptional image quality and patients will receive exams at lower dose,” said Rob Fabrizio, senior manager of marketing and product development at Fujifilm. The FDR D-EVO Cesium is an example of Fujifilm’s new strategic development program, called “Gentle Touch. Brilliant Image.” that leverages the company’s continued dedication to developing products with a focus on dose management while providing exceptional image quality and without sacrificing ease of use.

The new cesium iodide detector provides the same ease-of-use as the rest of the FDR D-EVO lineup. It features a lightweight cassette-sized design for enhanced versatility and ease of positioning in a wider variety of exams. The system includes a lightweight, easily removable lithium ion battery that provides fast charge times and up to 3.5 hours or 500 exposures of use per charge. Also included is a multi-charger system with two spare batteries to offer a fully charged spare when needed. A detachable cord provides the option for continuous charging and the ability to leave the detector in the Bucky for uninterrupted extended use.
