Thales Launches Pixium Portable 3543 DR Wifi-enabled Flat Panel Detector 

portable DR

At the 2016 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting in Chicago, Thales announced the launch of its newest class of flat panel detectors, the Pixium portable 3543 DR. The Pixium portable 3543 DR combines technology developed by Trixell, the joint venture between Thales, Siemens and Philips for the development of flat panel detectors. It also optimizes design to cost parameters, which helps reduce total cost of ownership and brings high-end digital radiography within easy reach of any OEM or integrator regardless of budgetary constraints. Because it is wifi-enabled, it has more flexibility and allows technicians to quickly share images with diagnosticians, thus streamlining hospital operations. The detector is lightweight and includes X-ray, auto-detection, Image Storage and Multi-Share with automatic attachment by infra-red. It can also support new communication protocols such as near-field communication (NFC), and features two types of scintillators, CsI as well as Gadox, making it suitable for new radiography equipment or retrofit of existing analog systems.
