Varian Medical Systems to Showcase a Wide Range of X-Ray Tubes and Flat Panel Detectors Developed for Digital Radiography
SHENZHEN, China, April 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Booth H1-E52 -- Varian Medical Systems (NYSE: VAR) will exhibit PaxPower™ X-ray tubes and PaxScan® digital detectors at China International Medical Equipment Fair (CMEF) in Shenzhen, China from April 14-20. The company will also display its technologies for treating cancer with fast, image-guided radiotherapy and radiosurgery.
Products on display will include:
- PaxPower FP 1000 X-ray tube - Varian's next-generation X-ray tube designed for digital imaging systems. The new PaxPower FP tube platform was designed for space efficiency and high performance. "The lightweight anode-end grounded PaxPower tubes are half the size and have twice the power of conventional dual-ended tubes," said Steve Kimmel, vice president sales and marketing for Varian's X-Ray Products group.
- PaxScan 4343CB digital detector – Incorporating the PaxScan X technology, the 4343CB panel is designed to support both high quality radiography and state-of-the art dynamic imaging. The 4343CB enables dual-energy imaging and tomosynthesis in radiography, while also serving in Universal RF and large volume cone beam CT (CBCT) applications. The large field of view panel features multiple sensitivity ranges, extended dynamic range modes and a 139 µm pixel size for highly detailed images, excellent contrast and spatial resolution, while delivering a low X-ray dose to the patient.
- PaxScan 1515DX – The mid-size CBCT and panoramic imaging panel uses Varian's new DX technology for advanced digital imaging within C-arm systems as well as dental and industrial applications. "Our PaxScan detectors make it possible to acquire high resolution images in real-time, for quick diagnoses and patient treatment," said Kimmel.
- PaxScan 3024M - This compact dynamic detector design for full field digital mammography utilizing tomosynthesis technology incorporates a narrow border at the chest wall and rapid image-acquisition capability. "This new architecture, based on amorphous silicon (a-Si) technology, promises to extend the capabilities of digital mammography into emerging markets and mobile screening applications where its environmental stability makes it an attractive option over existing technologies," said Kimmel.
Varian's new TrueBeam™ system for performing image-guided radiotherapy and radiosurgery, with unprecedented speed will also be on display along with the latest enhancements to the company's Eclipse™ treatment planning and ARIA® oncology information system, which are designed to make radiotherapy and radiosurgery treatments faster, more precise, and easier to plan and deliver.
