March 16, 2015 — Varian Medical Systems showcased a full spectrum of X-ray imaging solutions at the annual European Congress of Radiology (ECR) meeting in Vienna, Austria. The company’s offerings bundle components and software to improve image quality, reduce costs, and enable greater patient throughput for manufacturers of mammography, fluoroscopy, angiography, cardiology and cone-beam computed tomography (CT) imaging systems.

Varian's exhibit this year centered on carefully engineered X-ray tube housings, flat-panel digital image detectors and image processing software products, including:

  • The B-121 mammography housing, designed for high throughput and performance in specialized mammography systems. This air-cooled housing, which was developed for digital mammography and tomography applications, fits a standard 3-inch X-ray tube insert. It is available with two shroud configurations: with D/C fans or without fans. The fan configuration gives the housing a 200 percent increase in continuous heat dissipation over standard mammography housings.
  • The direct capture PaxScan 3024M flat panel X-ray image detector, designed for full field digital mammography (FFDM). This narrow and compact detector offers rapid image-acquisition capabilities that make it possible to acquire images close to the chest wall, with results available in seconds. Its architecture, which is based on amorphous silicon (a-Si) design, can operate at rapid frame rates for advanced mammographic applications.
  • Nexus Digital Imaging Software, a platform that can process both digital radiography (DR) and radiographic fluoroscopy (RF) images from PaxScan digital detectors on a single platform. With its multimodality and multi-detector flexibility, the high-performance Nexus technology offers reduced equipment costs.

 

Varian's exhibit will highlight additional imaging components designed for space efficiency and high performance.
