December 11, 2014 — Teledyne DALSA introduced four new detectors at the RSNA 2014 Technical Exhibition, Nov. 30-Dec. 4 in Chicago. The new models complete the Xineos family of real-time, low-dose CMOS flat X-ray detectors, featuring fields-of-view of 20x22 cm, 22x22 cm and 30x30 cm. Xineos detectors are targeted at interventional procedures, positioned to replace TFT flat detectors and image intensifiers of up to 12 inches in size.
The new Xineos models — including the 2222HS, 3030HS, 2022HR and 3030HR — utilize Teledyne DALSA's sixth generation proprietary radiation-hard CMOS active pixel design and surpass the low-dose performance of image intensifiers with the form factor advantages of traditional amorphous silicon flat panels. The detectors offer switchable saturation dose, low dissipation power and built-in gain, offset and defect correction.
The high-speed Xineos-HS detectors, featuring 152 micrometre pixel size, are designed to meet the needs of both surgical and cardiovascular procedures by combining high dynamic range with strong signal-to-noise performance and real-time imaging at the lowest exposure levels in full resolution at up to 90 fps. Additionally, the detectors with square field-of-view of 22x22 cm2 are the largest commercially available 9-inch flat detectors to benefit spinal surgery.
Xineos-HR is the high-resolution line of detectors, featuring pixel size of 99 micrometres. They are capable of 30 fps real-time imaging at full resolution of up to 5 megapixels or 9 megapixels for the 9-inch or 12-inch detector sizes, respectively. Flexible zoom modes can be used to capture regions-of-interest at 120 fps or faster.
