Toshiba Kalare With Flat Panel Detector Receives FDA Clearance

Enclosed table design reduces scatter radiation up to 95 percent

Toshiba Kalare With Flat Panel Detector Receives FDA Clearance

November 4, 2014 — Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc.’s Kalare radiographic and fluoroscopy (R/F) digital X-ray system with flat panel detector (FPD) has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance.

The enclosed table design of the Kalare FPD R&F system may reduce scatter radiation by up to 95 percent, optimizing safety for patients and staff, while its 17-inch x 17-inch size provides quality images edge-to-edge without an increase in dosage. This design also helps reduce panning time for exams requiring fluoroscopy, such as a barium swallow and eliminates periphery image distortion, leading to higher image quality and better diagnoses.

The Kalare R&F digital X-ray system will be showcased at this year’s Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting in Chicago, Nov. 30–Dec. 5, 2014.
