Varian Receives FDA Clearance for Nexus DRF Digital X-Ray Imaging System

Varian’s Nexus DRF Digital X-Ray Imaging System has the ability to interface with a variety of image receptors.

May 24, 2014 — Varian Medical Systems received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Varian’s diagnostic X-ray image processing workstation that combines radiographic/fluoroscopy (RF) and digital radiography (DR) capabilities on one platform.  Varian’s Nexus DRF Digital X-Ray Imaging System has the ability to interface with a variety of image receptors, including CCD cameras and commercially available flat-panel image detectors. 

“Nexus is Varian’s 6th generation image processing platform,” said Carl LaCasce vice president and general manager for Varian’s Imaging Products business.  “It’s an updated platform designed to provide our customers with a universal system that addresses both dynamic and static imaging modalities, as well as CCD camera based fluoroscopy.”

The Nexus system enables an operator to acquire, display, process, transmit, export or print high-resolution X-ray images.  The image processing algorithms make it possible to bring out diagnostic details that can be difficult to see using conventional imaging techniques.  The major system components include an image detector, a computer, a high-resolution monitor and Varian’s image processing software.  Each system can be set up to process data from multiple receptors and detectors.

“By integrating both RF and DR capabilities on the Nexus console, we seek to provide our OEM partners with a standardized platform to optimize workflow and reduce time to market and equipment costs,” said LaCasce.
