New X-Ray Tubes and Flat Panel Detectors on Display at ECR

March 4, 2011 – Digital image detectors and X-ray tubes for fluoroscopy, angiography, cardiology and cone-beam CT imaging will be on display at the European Congress of Radiology (ECR) in Vienna. Varian will showcase several products, including its PaxScan digital image detectors.

"The new panel and tube platforms offer a path to improve image quality, greater cost efficiency, and potential for increased patient throughput," said Steve Kimmel, vice president of sales and marketing for Varian X-Ray products.

The products to be highlighted at ECR are:

• The new M-1500, the company’s first X-ray tube developed specifically for advanced mammography applications such as tomosynthesis and computed tomography (CT). It provides exceptional performance in a space efficient design.

• The new PaxPower FP X-ray tube, which is optimized for interventional procedures and portable surgical CT systems. The new tube platforms were developed with a smaller footprint and higher power. It provides a dramatically smaller and lighter package with higher heat dissipation allowing for higher patient throughput.

• The new PaxScan 3024M flat panel detector designed for full field digital mammography. The compact design, incorporating a narrow edge and rapid image-acquisition capabilities, enables radiologists to acquire images close to the chest wall with results in seconds. This architecture is based on amorphous silicon (a-Si) design allowing rapid frame rates for advanced mammographic applications.

• The new PaxScan 4336R "hot swap" technology, which allows the radiographic panel to be unplugged and plugged back in without having to reboot the system.

This feature easily moves the panel from the X-ray table to a chest stand without interrupting workflow, allowing radiologists to use one panel per room or one panel across multiple rooms, lowering system costs.
