New DR Detector Features Lightweight Design

July 21, 2010 – Imaging facilities looking to convert existing analog X-ray rooms to digital can now adopt the FDR D-EVO flat-panel cassette, which recently received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The FDR D-EVO from Fujifilm Medical Systems USA Inc. has a seamless retrofit that enables facilities to insert the digital radiography (DR) detector directly into the existing X-ray table or wall stand without modification, making it more convenient to transition to DR. The FDR D-EVO features a small, lightweight design, weighing just six pounds and measuring 14- by 17-inches, which provides portability to address lateral or other cassette-based exams as needed. It can also be used as a complement to existing DR rooms such as for cross-table exams. This flexibility also makes the FDR D-EVO useful for areas where immediate access to high quality X-ray images is crucial, like the operating room or emergency department. FDR D-EVO uses Fujifilm’s patented Irradiation Side Sampling (ISS), an innovative technology that improves detective quantum efficiency (DQE). As a result, it produces images with enhanced sharpness and reduced noise for increased diagnostic confidence. Other distinct advantages of the FDR D-EVO include its use of secure connectivity to transmit images to the technologist’s workstation in as little as three seconds, with cycle times of only nine seconds. Its detachable cord offers the benefits of easier repositioning of the panel in the radiographic table or wall stand, elimination of battery life and wireless signal integrity concerns and increased safety from reduced potential of trip hazards.
