October 28, 2009 - Varian Medical Systems will highlight its full line of PaxScan flat-panel digital X-ray image detectors for digital radiography, fluoroscopy, and cone-beam CT imaging at RSNA this year.
The PaxScan 4336R, a 14-by-17-inch detector, is the first ruggedized portable X-ray flat panel detector designed to replace standard film cassettes used in existing general radiographic applications. The 4336R fits existing bucky trays and facilitates simple DR upgrades. The 4336R is now available in the optional ruggedized hand-held portable enclosure.
The PaxScan 4343R, Varian's largest panel, a 17-by-17-inch detector was created for permanent mounting in radiographic tables or wall stands, or for any application that requires a large field of view.
Except for their physical size, both panels incorporate identical detector arrays and readout electronics. Image data and control signals, which are based upon an industry standard gigabit ethernet interface, can be passed to and from these detectors using standard network interface cards.
Varian’s PaxScan line of imaging detector panels are available for medical and industrial applications, including: medical diagnostics, veterinary care, dental imaging, and security.
Varian is an independent supplier of flat panel digital detectors used in medical imaging.
