Varian Focuses Attention on PaxScan Image Detectors

Varian will be showing new and upgraded PaxScan products at RSNA 2006.
The new PaxScan 2520V replaces the 2520 for the cardiac and conventional C-arm market. With the new panel, there is no need for the command processor, an extra piece of hardware that was needed with the 2520. It is replaced with virtual software on the upgraded version. The new 2520V delivers 14-bit grayscale contrast resolution by integration of new ASIC chip technology.
The PaxScan 4030CB with the new second-generation Command Processor (CP2) is the company’s latest panel for cone-beam CT imaging. It takes the 4030CB, reduces the size of the original command processor-based design by
50 percent and eliminates several hardware components that are now programmable.
The newest addition is the PaxScan 1313, which can replace the six-inch image intensifiers currently used in many mini C-arm orthopedic imaging systems. Designed for low-cost, high-quality imaging, the panel offers sensitivity over a 13-by-13-cm imaging area and can produce up to 30 images per second.
