November 27, 2013 — Teledyne DALSA, a Teledyne Technologies company and digital X-ray image sensing technology manufacturer, will introduce its new flat X-Ray detector at the Radiological Society of North America Annual Meeting (RSNA 2013) Dec. 1-5 in Chicago. Teledyne DALSA's latest advances in complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS)-based detectors for real time, low dose medical diagnostics will be on display at booth 5104 in the South Hall at RSNA 2013.
The Xineos-1515 features Teledyne DALSA's next generation CMOS image sensor technology and delivers a combination of high-sensitivity and high dynamic range (HDR) operational modes from a single detector. This latest Xineos detector features a pixel with 99-micrometer resolution and a switchable saturation dose where X-ray technicians can choose between high sensitivity and extended dynamic range depending on the requirements of the procedure. The extended field of view (FOV) allows surgical teams a wider and more comprehensive overview of an operating scene. This high-speed, low-power detector is capable of real-time (30 frames per second) imaging without the need for forced air or liquid coolers, which makes it an ideal choice for fixed as well as mobile interventional C-arms, fluoroscopy and 3-D orthopedic imaging systems.
"Our versatile panels deliver the low-dose image quality standard of image-intensified CCD cameras with the form factor and workflow advantages of digital flat detectors," said Yves Kessener, senior product manager, Teledyne DALSA.
In addition to the Xineos-1515 and work-in-progress on dynamic large area CMOS X-Ray detectors, Teledyne DALSA will showcases its complete portfolio of advanced CMOS and CCD TDI X-ray detectors, including:
- Xineos-1313: Xineos CMOS flat detectors deliver benchmark low dose diagnostic image quality at full resolution and in real time.
- Argus: Scanning CCD-TDI X-Ray detector platform for dental panoramic, cephalometry, mammography and general radiography applications.
- Helios: Optimized for mobile applications, Helios features a large active imaging area of 20 cm by 25 cm (8 inches by 10 inches) while maintaining high image resolution with a pixel size of only 96 micrometers.
